(KMOV.com) -- A Florissant man is asking a simple question. He wants to know who owns the property behind his house, and who is supposed to take care of it?

Mark Beatty has lived on Leisure Srive for more than 35 years. He knows the property isn’t his, but he also knows if he and his neighbors don’t mow and weed it, it doesn’t get done.

Beatty worries that could lead to trouble.

“There could me more rats, racoons, possums, more critters that I’d rather not have venturing into my house,” he said.

Beatty likes the creek that runs behind his home but it bothers him to see it too is overgrown, just years after MSD spend millions to rebuild it. 

After many dead-ends, he contacted News 4 to find out who’s responsible.

It seems like a simple question, but as Mike Colombo reports, there is no easy answer.
