This Bullard Street residence is among those to be cleaned ceaned up by the city.

In an effort to spruce up the city, the Atmore City Council unanimously agreed Monday  to continue with a resolution already in place.

Work has already begun along the guidelines of the resolution by ridding the city of areas that have become an eyesore as well as a danger around town.

The resolution will allow crews to continue with cleaning of properties inside the city limits declared to be a grass and weed nuisance.
