What about the mess?

The Sentinel-Record - - VIEWPOINTS -

Dear editor:

Does a build­ing per­mit re­quire a job to be com­pleted, in­clud­ing drive­ways and side­walks, be­fore a build­ing can be oc­cu­pied? I’m re­fer­ring to the un­sightly mess in front of McDon­ald’s restau­rant at Craw­ford and Cen­tral Av­enue.

That mess has been there for months since oc­cu­pancy. To be fair though, a month or more ago, there was an at­tempt to fix it. But, the at­tempt failed, mak­ing the mess much worse. The owner of the busi­ness next door, to the south, has no doubt been neg­a­tively and se­ri­ously im­pacted.

Would any other busi­ness get away with that? A deep pock­ets busi­ness? I sus­pect our city of­fi­cials don’t want to take on a big com­pany with bet­ter lawyers. Nyle Cear­lock Hot Springs
