CARTHAGE, Mo. —
I see this Jasper County nuisance law as a terrible injustice on the rights of the residents of Jasper County. I see this as a way for the haves to get their hands on the have-nots’ property for pennies on the dollar.
The ones who are creating a health hazard can be handled by the Jasper County Health Department.
But the idea of a cleanup program should be handled with respect for the property owner. I see the nuisance law as the wrong way to treat the residents of Jasper County — forcing cleanup and then adding the cost to property taxes. Jasper County commissioners, you should be ashamed.
