• Alderwoman Elizabeth Thomas reminded citizens of the city-wide ordinance concerning bagged leaves. With the fall season approaching, she encouraged residents to bag their leaves for the city trash crew to collect.
• Alderman Ron Johnson said he hopes the recent altercations and fights among Yazoo City’s young people will decline.
“You don’t pay property taxes or own anything,” he said. “You are fighting for nothing. Pull up your pants and pull up to a job.”
• Mayor Diane Delaware said she is also very appreciative of the patrons who have began using the basketball courts of Campanella Park. She said they have been very respectful of the city’s parking zones around the courts and have kept the area clean during its usage.
Delaware also said there is city-wide ordinance concerning the placement of signs along the community’s roads. She said a permit must be acquired to place signs on city streets.
“If you do not have a permit, your sign will be removed,” she said. “We will hold your sign for a few days, but you have to get a permit.”
