According to Ludowici City Clerk Tara Warren, the city council took steps during its Sept. 11 meeting to clean up two deserted properties.
One site noted was an abandoned mobile home on Church Street that has vegetation growing around it.
The council decided the structure is in violation of the city’s nuisance ordinance. There were also concerns about snakes being around the structure. The council decided a letter would be sent to the owner, giving them 60 days to clean up the property.
A second property discussed is on McDonald Street. It was previously mentioned during the December 2006 city council meeting, but efforts to have the deserted mobile home cleaned up were unsuccessful. The council decided city attorney Richard Phillips would contact the owner to try and resolve the problem.
In other business:
n City Clerk of Court Cindy McClelland reported the council passed a resolution stipulating 60 percent of all revenue generated by fines imposed by the Long County state court would be returned to the city.
n The council also approved the hiring of Joel Duck as a full-time police officer and amended the Building Permitting and Regulations Guidelines for single and multi-family homes to include the following:
Residential lots with public or community water and sewage systems must have at least half an acre of useable soil.
Residential lots with private water and septic systems must have at least one acre of useable soil.
Before a building permit can be sold for new construction in the city, the plat proposal must be presented for a public hearing and then approved by the city council.
