The Town of Coushatta has taken another step to rid the town of blighted and neglected properties. The Town Council voted on Tuesday to have their attorney send out letters to the owners of the properties telling them to clean up and fix up them.
Mayor Johnny Cox told Town Attorney Cloyd Benjamin that there are a large number of properties that need attention. Cox said, “You will send out a lot of letters.
Town workers have reviewed properties that need attention within the city limits. They have recorded the addressed and documented deficiencies with photos. The complete list is expected to be published in the near future.
The notice from the town will instruct property owners to correct the deficiencies or the town will do it and send them the bill.
