Council will take owners of unkept property to court

GUIN – City officials are looking to crack down on dirty properties and untidy lawns.
Councilman Roger Agnew introduced the topic during the Guin City Council’s meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 21, asking how the city can address unkept and trashed property.
Guin City Clerk Rebeca Markham told Agnew that this can be done through the court system.
Markham said those familiar with a problematic property may file a complaint with Guin City Court Magistrate Terri Dennis. She said Guin police will serve the property owner with papers, and if no action is taken to fix the problem, the owner could be tried in city court.
