Our Opinion: Cleaning inside and out

Monday, April 10, 2006

Spring cleaning time as arrived and we urge residents of area communities and the rural area to clean not only inside but also outside as well.

The appearance of our towns and rural properties affects how people view the area which has a potential impact on tourism and future development.

Moreover, keeping properties neat shows self-respect and consideration for neighbors.

Most of our communities have nuisance ordinances, as does the county, but enforcement of theses ordinances can be overwhelming for the various entities in the county. Besides, by time these ordinances are enforced, the nuisance has gone far beyond what it should have gone for far longer than it should.

Let's take pride in our properties, our communities and our county.
