unbelivable, need a permit for demolition. Should bring in a lot of money since half of Blytheville needs to be demolished!! City should be glad if someone wants to tear down old property, not trying to find a way to make money on them.

This is just the beginning. After everyone leaves in three years, they will have all kinds of illegal fees and tariffs.

I thought the same thing. We need people to remove the uninhabitable buildings from their property. So what do we do to encourage the clean-up? WE CHARGE THEM FOR CLEANING THEIR PROPERTY. Makes no sense at all.

This will only encourage people to NOT clear off the dilapidated buildings.

Why the fees? For code enforcement doing inspections? What the heck are they going to do anyway? It's not like they spend all of their time inspecting all of the new building going on in town. Code enforcement is getting paid for 8 hours a day. I would think they have enough time between the 4 people in that office to take care of demolition inspections.

The fact is that the City should have an incentive program to REWARD people for tearing down buildings that need to be removed, not to tax them.

It's common logic with a tax or imposition of fees. If you want people to cut down on smoking, you impose a cigarette tax. If you want society to improve the quality of their food intake, impose a hamburger tax. If you want people to NOT tear down a house, impose a demolition fee. MAKES NO SENSE.

It makes sense in Blight-ville. The parasites are living well scamming off the people..Anything the leaders and their "buds" can do to increase their wealth and their friends wealth they will.
A good example is the hiring of E. Brown who is living off the people already thru all the taxpayers money he gets, now he gets $40,000.00 a year off the city plus free health insurance and retirement funds.
Keep in mind this old man had a good paying job at NYS. He gave it up for the pay from all the grant funded organizations he is involved in supposedly to help people less fortunate than he...what a joke.
