Bethune blighted property owners may face fines
John Fulmer
Bethune Town Councilman John Fulmer discusses a proposed ordinance which would levy $250 fines against property owners who do not clean up blighted properties. Council did not vote on the matter during Thursday nights meeting. Fulmer said he would like to go into effect on Jan. 1, which would necessitate a special called meeting to consider one of two required votes on the ordinance. - photo by Gary Phillips
Owners of “blighted properties” in Bethune may end up paying for not cleaning up their properties. To date, Bethune Town Council has encouraged owners to clean up, but Councilman John Fulmer reported again Thursday very little progress has been seen. During council’s monthly meeting Thursday night, Fulmer said the town sent registered letters to such property owners.
