City commissioners pledge to pursue neglectful property owners
Cedartown City Commissioners Monday said that they are committed to dealing with a problem of bank owned and rental properties in the city that are not being kept up, especially grass cutting. Commissioner Scott Tillery discussed the issue in the commissioner’s regular meeting Monday addressing that several of the properties have detached ownership and that some of those properties are deteriorating. Code enforcement officer Joseph Martin told commissioners that not only high grass, but broken windows and doors wide open at vacant properties are also against code. City manager Charles Akridge said that it is grass cutting season and the city needs to go after the owners of neglected property.
