SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) — Dozens of people gathered at city hall in Springfield tonight to call on Mayor Domenic Sarno to implement two anti-foreclosure ordinances.

The city council passed the ordinances two years ago.

Anti-foreclosure advocacy group Springfield No One Leaves says it’s been too long… but Springfield mayor Domenic Sarno says it takes time to implement new ordinances.

“We are calling on the mayor to meet with representatives and residents from ‘Springfield No One Leaves’ and folks who have been affected by foreclosure, and so that the folks who have been affected have a voice in the implementation process,” said Malcom Chu of Springfield No One Leaves.

Mayor Sarno released a statement today on the vacant and foreclosing property ordinance saying, in part:

“The city has just completed the necessary internal operational details for a successful implementation and will bring this important issue before the City Council at their next regularly scheduled meeting on October 21, 2013 for approval.”

    So let me get this straight…you dont pay your bills and nothing should happen to you? Not really to fair to those of use that struggle every month, go to work and still pay our bills. Guess I should threaten my bank with this, I missed one month and got a letter in the mail stating they could foreclose on me, real nice how some people get away with doing this but others would be told to get bent and take our property.
