City Council Passes Ordinance over Property Clean Up

January 22nd, 2010 by

The Monticello City Council discussed an ordinance at their regular monthly meeting that will require citizens to clean their property and require a certain procedure to be followed. After much debate, the council decided that grass should remain below 12” and that if it exceeds 12”, they could require the owner of the land to clean it up.

City Council is considering exempting undeveloped land from the ordinance, but as it stands right now, all property is included. If the council exempts undeveloped land, landowners must still keep trash off that land. They are trying to clean up the city and keep it looking clean.

The ordinance was approved with only Clifton Bond objecting.  Bond decided to clarify his reason for opposing the ordinance by stating that he is not against cleaning up the city, but he doesn’t “think this is the right way to go about it.”

The council also approved a resolution to authorize the mayor to apply for a grant from the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, approved a resolution to accept the contract for the MEDC, approved a resolution to accept the contract for the Chamber of Commerce, and approved a resolution to accept the contract for the Boys & Girls Club.

  1. Concerned citizen says:

    My only concern is will this began at the town square where the building has collapsed and also the old burlington plant on Jackson street

  2. Susdan Hollinger says:

    I don’t see how they can make people keep their yards mowed and not do anything about the square and the old Ryburn building

  3. Justwondering says:

    They should be more worried about what are city looks like than the other things right now
