Speakout 9/2

Thursday, September 2, 2004

I would like to SpeakOut about the city's No Tolerance for derelict vehicles in the city. I noticed that it started on the west end and it's still on the west end. I've been on the east end of town and have seen cars that were there when the No Tolerance started. The same cars are still there. But we have stickers all over the west end, south west end, anywhere on the west end and even the north west end of town. But you can go anywhere on the east side of Sikeston and the same vehicles are still there with no stickers on them. Can someone explain this to me? Is Zero Tolerance just for part of Sikeston? That's what it looks like to me.

Call Code Enforcement at 471-2512.

We have neighbors on Poplar Street in Morehouse that has a bunch of old junk cars in their yard and the yard is all junked up. It's bad, really bad. There are all kinds of houses around here that are all junked up. Why can't the City of Morehouse make people clean up their yards? What happened to the Yard of the Month and making people clean up around here? It's a disgrace!

To the person who called in about the Caterpillar Company and employees, maybe they can hire in there if they think it's so great. I retired after working 30 years for the company and I don't think they are a bit greedy.

I want to thank C.D. for helping me get 10 bags of ice for my ice machine for after surgery. God will bless you in many ways, honey. Thank you.
