BENTON HARBOR — Teens at two Benton Harbor apartment complexes could be seen Wednesday feverishly trimming hedges, pulling weeds and sweeping up trash and debris as they took part in the “Battle of the Properties” between River Terrace Apartments and Brunson Hill Homes.

The winning team at River Terrace Apartments received bragging rights and a plaque, along with lunch from Steve Cook, regional manager of Continental Management, the company that manages the apartment buildings.
