Carrollton Council: Aiming to improve the community

By Lindsey Turner, Correspondent

The Carrollton City Council met on Thursday, May 2nd to discuss several items on their agenda. Mayor Mickey Walker opened the meeting in prayer. The first order of business that Walker brought up to the committee was to appoint a member to the Board of Equalization.

Ultimately, the council decided to appoint David Stokes.

Next, the council moved into discussion about the Unsightly Property Committee. Walker said that they have around fifteen houses marked, having received great feedback results so far and that they have received several agreements towards the demolition of unsightly property in town.

“Any house that we mark as unsightly property, the owners need to contact City Hall,” Walker said.

Next, the committee deliberated briefly about the grass cutting notices that have recently been sent out.    “We sent out numerous notices out about the grass on people’s property being taller than city ordinance. We appreciate everybody getting it cut. We hated to have to do it, but we sent out many letters to notify everyone,” Walker said.
