Rising Sun officials want struggling homeowners to know that help is available at town hall.

”General upkeep is getting bad,” Calvin Bonenberger, town administrator, told the mayor and commissioners recently. “Some of these houses are only 20- to 25-years old.”

Bonenberger said one run down house drags down the property values for the neighbors. Property value is like cash in your pocket, he said.

”This is how you get the home equity loan,” Bonenberger said.

Unknown to a lot of residents, he said town employees are eager and available to help, if only people will ask.

”Most of these issues can be solved with a pair of gloves, a rake and a shovel,” he said. “I realize sometimes life gets in the way. If you are struggling reach out for help.”

Start the process by calling town hall at 410-658-5353.
