Who's responsible for cleaning seized properties?

From Clean Up Jamaica Queens:

...the place has been sitting empty for awhile, with a "Marshal's Legal Possession" sign on the door, several Department of Sanitation violation notices (courtesy of yours truly) and a shit load of garbage in the front yard, down the basement stairs and on the porch. As usual, the garbage still stays and more gets added every day and again no one is doing anything about this and the place looks like shit and the community again as a whole suffers due to this bullshit and nonsense.

So is this and other places like this going to get cleaned-up or as usual will it just stay like this, get worse and continue the deterioration of Jamaica?

So, is the marshal supposed to clean it since it's in their possession? Hmm...

The landlord is now back in possession of the property. It is the landlords responsibility to clean it up.

Here is the latest response from DOS, when I reported this place for the like 5th time in a month:
SERVICE REQUEST #: 2013WB0754409
CREATED ON: 11/09/2013 12:07:00 PM
REQUEST TYPE: Dirty Condition
DETAIL: Sidewalk Dirty
STATUS: The Department of Sanitation investigated this complaint and issued a Notice of Violation.
LAST UPDATED ON: 11/15/2013 12:00:00 PM

So it looks like ANOTHER violation will be tacked up to the third world ghetto door, but the garbage as of today still sits there and more keeps accumulating.

Our City in INACTION.
