Is this not a Volunteer Fire Departmnent?
This is a joke. What the hell are property taxes for? Shame on those firefighters!Shame on Mayor David Crocker! Shame on the whole town of South Fulton TN!
And as usual, ignore the south and south east side of Cleveland.
I'd like to comment a little further on the above posting. Disclaimer, the above was posted by my wife.
Late last spring the code enforcement officers went thru this part of town and issued citations to people in the area for junked cars, garbage in front yards and many other eyesore issues. I applauded this effort and it did seem to get yards and porches cleared of trash and junk, and unregistered vehicle moved off of property. But 8 months later its all back again. Altho we have many people in our area that own and live in these homes and take pride in their appearance, we also have way to many that dont.
I'd recommend that enforcement officers not only cite the tenants of these properties, but also cite the homeowners of record. Unfortunatly many of these folks are 'absentee landlords' and dont seem to care much about appearance of the property they own. Sad because many of these properties were paid off many years ago and it seems the landlords are only interested in collecting the rent every month. Some of these properties should have the houses torn down, many being beyond repair. Truly, empty lots would look better in many of these locations.
Shame on the property owners that wont take care of these places!
A correction in the article. The grocery store has reopened. KFC building remains vacant.
I am dissapointed that the Depot is being turned into a bus terminal. Far better that after all the money spent on the building and area around it, the building be leased out to private individuals. Boutique and specialty stores in the old depot would not only benefit the downtown area, it would also attract more people to the downtown area. A bus terminal could have been put in many other locations near the downtown area, and at less cost. Bus terminal there in that historic building is a bad idea.
