New Ordinance To Allow Property Seizure

A new ordinance could mean a Harlan county city could seize property that's too dirty.

Evarts city officials tell us the proposed ordinance would allow them to seize vacant properties that have not been properly taken care of.
They say there is a procedure that would involve a written notice... then if the notice is not followed, the city would have to file suit to seize the property.
The mayor says it's an effort to cleanup the city.
