The residents of the townhome units at 1002 Hwy. 98 in Mexico Beach don’t know what to do about apartment one — the bugs and dead squirrels that reside there are not good neighbors.
The unit has been abandoned for the last three years and it has taken a toll on the building’s structure, and the crumbling drywall allows for bugs and small animals to get inside.
“Our property value has diminished a great deal,” said Chris Wilhelm, who shares a wall with the abandoned unit. “There’s dead animals in there. I don’t know what else to do; it’s going to fall down.”
