Was city cleanup of Alderman’s property legal?
By JAMIE PATTERSON
Some residents are questioning whether any laws were broken when city equipment and city workers were used to clean up property partially owned by a Yazoo City alderman.
Concerned citizens contacted The Yazoo Herald when they noticed city equipment on the land of a mechanic shop on 12th Street a couple of weeks ago. The property has long been considered by many to be an eyesore with junk cars and debris spread across the lot.
The land is partially owned by Ward 1 Alderman Charles “Mickey” O’Reilly.
City equipment can be used to pick up debris when it is placed on the right-of-way by the property owners. But a dump truck and backhoe were seen on the property well past the right-of-way, around the shop.
