Council also approved changing the city’s nuisance ordinance to fight the growing epidemic of tall weeds, old cars, and trash in DeLeon yards.“I want to just go ahead and issue a $100 fine,” said
Owen,“instead of giving [violators]a ten day notice to clean it up.” Council member Lee Childers agreed, saying that it was pathetic that the city has to contact the same violators all the time.“This is one of those things we have to police,” said Owen.“That’s one of those things we shouldn’t have to discuss.”

One of the biggest violators of tall grass and weeds and trash is the city of De Leon. Look at how tall the weeds are in the ditches and city right of ways. Look at the weeds and trash around the city's housing projects. Does the city fine itself $100 for each violation? Just curious.
