On July 7, 2023, Mayor Gary Looney sent a letter to all property owners in the City of Bald Knob. Due to problems with the Post Office, some letters made it out a few days later than intended so the date had to be changed on them.
The letter reads as follows:
"To Whom it may concern,
This letter is being sent to all Property Owners in the City of Bald Knob, AR. Whether you live on your property, live elsewhere & own a vacant lot. Between now & July 24th/July 31st, 2023, we need each of you to take a look at your property & take necessary steps to Clean Up your property. After July 31st, 2023, we will make every attempt to contact you. If no progress is made, we will Hire the work needed (Mowing, Bushhogging or Weed Eating, including Ditches & Alleys) and send you the Bill. If the Bill is not paid, a Lien will be placed on the property.
If you can't afford to Clean Up your property, Please Sell It. You can contact City Hall and we can put you in touch with willing Buyers/Real Estate Brokers in the area. Property will sell better, if it is well maintained.
The one thing we (The City) can't afford, is property that looks like "Nobody Cares"!
If you need help, Call us. The Code Enforcement # is 501-724-9709."
The letter was signed by Mayor Gary Looney.
