A letter regarding ordinance issues
The following letter was presented to members of the Beardstown Council at the Sept. 19 Council meeting and has been reproduced here at the writer’s request:
I still have an issue with how ordinance violations are being handled in town. During the 14 months I was ordinance officer, Beardstown was getting cleaned up and looking better. My job ended in August of 2016. Since that time I’ve seen people that I dealt with revert to letting their properties fall into violation again and new violations appearing.
