Mayor Perrin Suppors Property Code as Written
Mayor Harold Perrin supports the Jonesboro Property Maintenance Code as written for its scheduled final reading.
Perrin told the Jonesboro Sun Wednesday he saw “no changes that need to be made to it.” Supporters of the code say it would help keep property values high and would help in eliminating dilapidated building in the city.
Opponents say they like the exterior parts of the code, but are concerned about the interior requirements of the code, as well as the possibility of code enforcement officers from Jonesboro entering into homes.
The final reading and vote for the code by the City Council is scheduled for Tuesday.
