Volunteer groups may help clean up properties in city during work days, mayor says
By FRANK PHILLIPS
Property owners who cannot afford to clean up their property or have the ability to do it themselves may soon receive volunteer help.
Mayor Brian Wyndham said during Wednesday’s meeting of the Brazil Board of Public Works and Safety that he has been talking to people and he believes various organizations would be willing to have a clean-up day to help their neighbors.
He said that is different than those property owners who could clean up their property but stubbornly refuse to do so.
During the meeting, the board:
•Voted 3-0 to approve a purchase agreement for the city to buy property that was previously a trailer part on the Northeast side of Turner Street for $50,000, “to prevent it becoming a blighted area,” said Mayor Brian Wyndham. The property is located behind East Side School, he said.
• Opened four bids fo the Jackson Street sidewalk project. Six bid packets were distributed and four bids were received.
The bids were taken under advisement.
