Jayton City Council discusses ordinance enforcement options, public works salaries

Thursday, June 21, 2018

The June 11, 2018, regular meeting of the Jayton City Council began the same way as the last regular meeting, held on May 14, 2018, with public comment on perceived proliferation of refuse, weeds and nonworking vehicles in town in reference to public health.

The matter was included on the agenda of the June 11 meeting. An existing ordinance regulates the appearance and upkeep of properties on Main Street, but the city’s ability to enforce ordinances is constrained by a lack of municipal law enforcement. Councilwoman and Mayor Pro Tem Wyvonne Spray vowed to personally speak to each Main Street property owner in violation of the ordinance and ask them to clean up. County Attorney Bill Ballard has agreed to consult with the city regarding enforcement options. The matter was tabled pending the meeting with Ballard.
