Council brought up to speed on clean-up ordinance

HOXIE, AR (KAIT) - The Hoxie City Council was brought up to speed Tuesday night on the city clean-up efforts.

Mayor Lanny Tinker said he and Police Chief Glen Smith got feedback from other towns that already have a clean-up ordinance in place. Tinker feels Hoxie's ordinance will be just as successful.

Mowing yards, picking up debris and dealing with abandoned vehicles and houses are addressed in the ordinance.

"The whole purpose of this is to get the citizens to clean-up and improve their community and raise the value of property around them," Tinker said.

Tinker said they will implement grass cleanup starting Wednesday and the rest of the implementations will take place over the following days.
