“We need our city to start looking better”

Resident questions the lack of code enforcement

The Town of Kingston held their monthly meeting on July 9 and addressed multiple agenda items. Resident Tammy Chasse approached the podium and asked the council about brush pickup in the residential area.

“I’ve seen posts about brush pickup,” Chasse said. “Madill does it, why hasn’t Kingston done it?

Vice Mayor Lillie Parrish, who is also over the town’s water and sewer, said it is an issue they have been trying to handle. “I believe moving the brush is the property owner or tenant’s responsibility. We have been trying to deal with it, letters have been sent out.”

Mayor Robbie Kendrick said he liked the idea, but the town lacks the manpower and resources to complete the task.

Chasse voiced her frustration over the matter and how she feels as if the matter is not gaining any traction. “Previous council members have discussed giving tickets in the past, but there has been no progress.”
