For Sale Signs Line Neighborhood On Oil Spill One-Month Anniversary

Apr 29, 2013
(Fox16.com)

Activists have planned a rally in Mayflower for Monday to mark the one-month anniversary of an oil spill that's left parts of the community in shambles.

"For sale" signs are popping up like spring flowers in the Northwoods subdivision, where the spill originated, while ExxonMobil workers suck up and scrub away remaining oil.

Tarred storm drains have been removed from the ground and new ones sit in front yards waiting to be buried.

Several realtors listing homes in Northwoods said Sunday selling is slow going so far. 

Buyers are timid and offering low, realtors say.  Homeowners are wary over the details of Exxon's promise to guarantee sales.
