The city bulldozed an up-to-code home that was undergoing renovations while the owner had no idea.There was no warning or paperwork involved, and as an extra punch in the gut, they sent the owner a $12K bill for it. The Upper Ninth Ward home "fell to the zealousness of the [Mayor] Landrieu administration's commitment to eradicate 10,000 blighted structures, an instance of the government's right hand not knowing what the left hand was doing."
