The City of Port Allen is continuing its clean-up initiative by weeding out more than 40 junk vehicles throughout the city, and more action on junk vehicles underway.
City Inspector Milan Lathers said the city sent out 65 letters to property owners about removing some 80 junk vehicles or showing that they are operational.
“We’ve weeded out more than half of them and are working on the others,” Lathers said. “There is a legal process we have to follow if the property owners are not cooperative, and that takes time.”
Lathers has also contacted some property owners about high grass on their property besides handling other inspector duties.
His office is located in the newly painted Depot on La. Hwy. 1.
