Village public works employees using heavy equipment hauled away massive amounts of garbage that had filled the yard and driveway of a condemned Endicott residence.

A court order in late September directed all occupants to leave the two-story house at 1000 Monroe Street.

Police had reported a series of incidents tied to the site over the past year. Authorities said a shooting, a stabbing and a series of fights involving people linked to the residence were causing problems for people in the neighborhood.

A village code enforcement official condemned the property on October 4. A notice posted on the house on November 7 gave owner Travis Kipp 30 days to correct health and safety violations.

Endicott Mayor Linda Jackson said village workers descended on the site Monday morning with front-end loaders, dump trucks and a garbage truck to remove the trash on the property.

The exterior cleanup job took a few hours. Jackson said workers were not legally permitted to go inside the house.

Shortly after police evicted the occupants of the residence, people continued to enter the house even though the doors and windows had been boarded up.

The mayor said there have been no recent problems reported at the address.

Employees at a building with doctors offices across the street said they were pleased that the junk that had littered the yard across the street had finally been removed.
