POTH -- Some residents here are demanding that the city take action against property owners who have allowed unsightly, dangerous conditions to exist in their neighborhoods.

One of the residents to address the Poth City Council at its June 30 special meeting was Dick Evins of Sylvester Street. Evins said he filed a complaint regarding an adjacent neighbor, who has allowed bamboo plants to become overgrown. Evins said the plants provide cover for mice, snakes, and armadillos -- about which he cited a New England Journal of Medicine study indicating that the creatures are carriers of leprosy.

“Someone from the city is impressed with the responsibility to notify the owner to correct the situation,” he said.

Frank Luna addressed the council about a long-vacant house at 608 Griffith St., where he said buzzards have been seen congregating on the roof. This is one of two homes that Poth Police Chief Lowell Hull has been targeting for ordinance violations. Hull said he is attempting to work with the owner of that house -- and a similar one on Welhausen Street -- to correct the situation.

Gerald Eckel was among the residents living on F.M. 541 just east of the city limits who raised concerns over a property owner who has established a recreational-vehicle (RV) park, which they say receives municipal water service via one residential meter. The city requires such customers to have commercial service. Eckel said there currently are three RV trailers parked at the location.

“There are some places in there with no septic system at all,” Eckel said. “It just goes right on the ground.”

The council voted to work with the county to address septic issues and to have city officials conduct an inspection check for compliance with its water rules.

In other business, the council voted to approve a $14,800 proposal from Iseler Demolition Inc. of Romeo, Mich., for demolition of the water tower located off Railroad Street. The company will dismantle the 55-year-old metal structure and leave its concrete foundation behind.

The erosion of freedom began with the chipping away of property rights. This was generally accomplished in the guise of being for the common good. One can always volunteer along with neighbors to clean up a neighborhood. ... More ›

I agree with Sam Eagle. Your neighborhood should be clean and trash free. However, here in the city it is a big problem. There are several trashy yards and trash everywhere. The City of Floresville does a VERY poor job of ... More ›
