Well I see that this code enforcer is no better than the last ones we had. I live on the south end of Hayti and have complained to the last 3 code enforcers about the roaches coming from the Mayor's mothers house and nobody has done anything to her yet. so I think I will let my property grow up and dare him to say anything to me. He wants to pick on some people and others that own several properties in town and are run down grass up to you shoulders he does nothing. my friend lives on ash street and Howard Allen has several places there burnt and buildings down and he must be scared of him to. we need somebody that is not scared of people to clean this town up.

Why do we even need a code enforcer?I would really like to know what his job description is.It darn sure doesn't bother the city officials that this place gets worse & worse.You can drive down any street & see a disgusting mess.How about down by Jiffy Jims,the places are a disgrace.Why can't the city make the lazy a---- clean up their dirty filthy yards?This town is getting worse & worse with all the low life riff raft.I'm ashamed to tell people I live in Hayti!!!

We have alot of new things that look nice around the square....I think the people should want to pick up their own yards. And I must add if YOU have Bugs PAY and SPRAY!!!!

Anyone in a postion to inspect the city should have Strict rules about junk being piled and grass to tall growing around it. I know we all have rights but we all have Rules also.

Lets put the name of the people on here to help the code enforcer get this and any other problems taken care of. If he knows where the problems are then maybe he can deal with them.

This is a great idea, and I'll start with some:

Sandra Melton owns the place down from Jiffy Jims
Hoot Grau's place by wonder bread
Verna Black the mayor's mother on 2nd street
Bob Baily's house on madison
The Watson brothers shop on old 61
The Old Cleaners on square owned by the Mayor with no Roof

this is just a few anybody want to add to this

Guest, maybe you need to drive down the 300 block of south 2nd street and see what taxpayer is referring to. It's just nasty. She has a front porch packed with junk, a carport and yard full of junk, and torn up house across the street full of junk. I think it is a shame that she can get by with it. The mayor owns the property behind the old Hays building that burned a long time ago and is now packed with junk. There is also the building beside his house that is full. If they want to say they are cleaning up Hayti, they need to start with the property of the mayor and his mother. His mother also needs to control the pet population around her house. She has cats everywhere.

I think something should be done about the old daisy queen building at J & 84. I don't know who owns it, but I think it has Chubby's written on the side. About all of the glass is broken out and it just looks bad sitting there on a busy intersection. They also need to make the Zanza owners clean up that property. This is the entrance to Hayti, something everyone sees. Anything along that strip should have to be kept up.

The Sandra Melton's properties o the corner of N.3rd St & Grant & the vacant lot North is a disgrace.I know the city knows nothing about condeming property,but these properties need to be completely torn down.From Grant St.all the way down to Jiffy Jims need to be bull dozed down,with the exception of may two properties.Why don't Danny Dodson do his job?Why do we even have a code officer.It is really a waste of tax payers money!!!.

I totally agree that our city is looking worse and worse by the day. We have an overpopulation of animals running around, and nobody seems to care about anything. It is soo sad!!

Do any of you ever attend any of the city meetings with these problems? I'm not taking up for anyone! Jim Morgan's car has set right off of south Hwy 61 for the last ten years in the lot beside Budget Inn with grass grown all around it!

I go sometimes to the meetings and know they are trying to get something done but they will never make Bobby's mom clean up her place and the dogs are a big problem in town. The dog catcher is scared of the dogs and they sent him to school so what does that tell you. I think they need to clean house and get people that want to work.

I think the city should enforce the code officer to do his ddduty,otherwise it is a waste of taxpayers money.The city should clean up properties & attach it to their water bills.Can you imagine the water clerks response to that.That would be to much work.

Martha Ann's job is to print out our water bills & collect our payments & to let the water dept. workers know when a citizen calls with a water problem/leak on the city's side. She is educated to run the computer programs & data to keep that office running on track THAT TAKES WORK!!!!! Not to mention dealing with the irate public who think they can speak to her any way they want when they have a high water bill or other water problem!! SHE'S NOT RESPONSIBLE!!!!!! Take it to the person over the water dept. or the Mayor. LEAVE MARTHA ANN ALONE ON HERE!!!! SHE DOES HER JOB!

Well,My My,looks like wee hit a nerve with Dorothy Copeland.Just saying that is what they do in most places.Hayti is so far behind they don't know if the city is going or coming.Maybe they could hire another person to help with the job & attach the cleaning up of this dirty little town to the water bill.

I believe that any amount incurred for the clean up of a property would be added to the property owners city taxes.
