“We will inspect and photograph both personal and commercial properties for junk vehicles, trash, and over-grown grass and weeds. If warranted, we will issue a warning letter informing the responsible party they are in violation of city ordinances,” said Rodriguez.
“If the property owner doesn’t clean-up the property or move the junk vehicles within 10-days they will be issued a citation which will be filed with the municipal court. Violations of the ordinances could result in a $500 fine,” continued Rodriguez.
Just in time for operation ‘Clean-up Three Rivers’ City Secretary Rosie Forehand said the City will have their free quarterly brush pick up from Oct. 26 – Oct. 30. “The City will haul off brush free every day of this week. Everyone needs to stack their brush on the edge of their property along the street but, not in the alley. The city crew will not go on your property.”
As a reminder this should be done ahead of time. The pickup will be done street by street. “Once we have gone by your street we will not go back again. If anyone puts brush out again they will be charged $20 a load to haul off later,” said Forehand. Your help and cooperation in this clean-up is greatly appreciated stated Forehand.
Rodriguez closed by saying, “When people don’t take care of their yards, skunks and rattlesnakes invade. The animals are a danger to the health and safety of the residents in this area.”
Citizens are asked to report properties that are in violation with City ordinances to the police department at 361-786-2743.
