SWEET SPRINGS AUTHORITIES HAVING HARD TIME DELIVERING NUISANCE LETTERS

During the meeting of the Sweet Springs Board of Aldermen on Monday, February 12, Mayor Dee Friel said nuisance letters have been hard for the city to deliver to residents believed to be in violation of the ordinance.

Police Chief Tammy Johnson said the residents simply are not answering their door, so she’s trying to catch them out in public to deliver the letter.

City Clerk Michelle Fuehring pointed out that each certified letter costs the city from $5 to $7 to send.

A couple of aldermen asked if there is any other way to serve the letter.

City Clerk Michelle Fuehring said she will talk to the city attorney and see if there are any other steps the city can take.

In actions taken, the board approved a resolution authorizing Friel to sign an application for the Land and Conservation Fund– pool grant; and approved an application for a liquor license.

The board also set the public hearing about the 2018-19 budget for 5:45 p.m. on Monday, March 12.
