Is there a code enforcement office? If so, why does the town looks so run down and with so many code violations and safety hazards?

The answer to this is no. Mayor Scotty Stegalls lethargic fat ass is suppose to handle stuff like that but instead he sits on it all day and thinks up more ways to add to his already lop sided city mayor salary of a growing 54,000.00 a year.

That is so sad! There are too many abandoned buildings, streets are bad, half burned houses, and an epidemic of stray animals. As if the city officials do not want the town to be prosperous. ijs

Those of you who live inside the city limits can go to all the city council meetings and let them know how you feel. The mayor and city council members are elected. If they want to keep their jobs, they might start doing something if enough voters demand they start doing their jobs. It would be worth a try.

I can tell you it does no good to go to council meetings and complain, if you do your water bill will go up I can promise, I complained several times about some of this and since then my water bill has gone up several times and I use no more water now than I did then. And just run for council or mayor and see where it gets you, I can promise it will be no where.

Cooper needs a city manager. They could hire a good one for the money they pay otherwise.

I think what you meant to say was if you continue to reelect a worthless slug like stegall like people have always done, you will continue getting what we have always had. Which is a run down shit hole of a town with many lazy idiots in authoritative positions.

Everyone should move out of that town. If you have always been there, maybe you don't know what else is out there. There are really nice places to live away from all the crap you people put up with.

Lucky for me, I don't live in Cooper but I pass through it enough. What has the mayor done to improve the city? If the answer is "nothing" why do you put up with him? It's up to you to find someone who has a vision, a plan, integrity and enough gumption to make it happen. It does no good to get on here and complain. That said, I do my share of complaining on here too. But seriously folks, find someone who can get something done. I here the position isn't advertised so what? It's easy enough to find out. I think you can go to the court house and find out when he last run. Mayors' run every two years.
