540 addresses in the state have orders to vacate, according to ODH

The Ohio Department of Health this month published a list of 540 addresses in the state that have orders to vacate. The orders were issued after children who lived in the homes tested positive for lead poisoning and property owners failed to comply with health department orders to make improvements. Lucas County has 27 properties on the list, the fourth most of any municipality in Ohio. All are in Toledo. No one should be living in any of the houses on list, said Josh Niese, who oversees the lead program for the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, which provided the local addresses to the state for publication.
