Get the weeds out

Take a drive along Lakeview Acres Road in Maryville. I've tried for more than two years to get the weeds mowed. After addressing a couple of unrelated items with the mayor a year ago, I again asked that the property owners be required to maintain the properties in accordance with the mowing ordinance.

The mayor and the Village Board then changed the ordinance to allow weeds and grass to grow on certain properties without limits. But under terms of that change, the properties are still in violation.

I recently wrote the mayor asking that it be addressed. I know of no action taken to date.

Call the mayor at the Village Hall, 345-7027, extension 7.

Thanks, Mayor, for keeping Maryville beautiful.
