Eyesore of the week

4623 Hughes Road, Lansing


This one-story, 1953 home with 1,043 square feet of living space features boarded-up windows, partial metal screen door frames hanging from the front and a window with a softball-sized hole in it. The white paint is peeling off and the grass on Tuesday was nearing knee-high. 

A peak inside shows some work has been done on the property, including electrical sockets and wiring. But that work stopped after a building permit expired in 2021. It has been red-tagged since Nov. 2, 2020, according to city records. It’s also been subject to notices on grass and weeds seven times and trash six times. It was also cited for construction without a permit in August 2020. In March 2021, it was cited over a disabled vehicle. 

City records show hundreds of dollars are due for monitoring and late fees. 

The property was purchased by Kelly Curtis and Hooper Nojac in July 2020. Ingham County property records show $5,326.97 in overdue property taxes. The taxes from 2021, $4051.60, were paid on Feb. 24 this year.  Efforts to locate the owners for comment were unusccessful.
