Hoxie to start city cleanup Tuesday

HOXIE, AR (KAIT) - It may cost you some money if your yard is not mowed in the city of Hoxie.

According to a Facebook post from Mayor Lanny Tinker, code enforcement in the Lawrence County town will be in full effect during the month of September. Any residence or business with grass above six inches or has an unsightly area will be issued a citation.

People can call the city hall at 878-886-2742 to report violations.

However, Tinker said code enforcement needs a good address or a specific description of the property to get something done.

Following a question about the post, Tinker responded stating the city has "volunteers working to assist people who are elderly or have special circumstances."

Call the mayor's office for more information.
