Vidalia wants to crack down on overgrown property

Posted: Updated:

VIDALIA, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The city of Vidalia wants to crack down on unsightly, overgrown empty lots and yards around homes.

The city's Board of Aldermen were discussing giving police the authority to issue court summons for city residents who won't do something about their overgrown property.

Vidalia's grass cutting ordinance may have already been changed to give officers that ability, but at this week's meeting, Attorney Scott McLemore said he wanted to be sure that the wording does indeed allow officers to write tickets on overgrown lots and yards. 

Mayor Hyram Copeland asked McLemore to review the ordinance and let the board what is need to ensure the enforcement of the ordinance
