Some neighbours in Gibbons may not be pulling their weight in keeping the town looking spiffy.
From January 1 to June 31, the town had 25 unsightly premises complaints. In the same time in 2017 only seven were reported. 
Mayor Dan Deck said he's happy to hear people are reporting these things.
"Posting on social media really does nothing. We don't track it or stat it. If we get a complaint we can actually deal with it within the town."
Unsightly premises could include properties with an excessive amount of garbage and litter, unused vehicles or vehicle parts, long or uncut grass, unkept trees and shrubs and lack of maintenance or repair.
