Council continues clean up

Published 9:17 am Wednesday, September 28, 2011

The Atmore City Council is continuing its efforts to clean up the community as council members approved another resolution Monday targeting 18 properties deemed as grass and weed nuisances.

Monday’s approval marks the third grass and weed nuisance resolution the council has passed this year and will result in the distribution of official 21-day notices to the property owners, giving them a final opportunity to resolve the situation before the city steps in.

In all, 26 properties were listed on the most recent nuisance list, with eight owners already complying with the ordinance.
