Spring will spring in St. Pauls, and with it will come an abundance of new growth. Some of that growth will be welcomed, but other greenery will not be. Weeds will come with the daffodils, and weeds are one of the things that Town Ordinances seek to address.

The Town of St. Pauls gently tries to encourage those residents who do not take time or pride in their yards to at least meet the minimum standards, and has ordinances in place to address such things as unkempt yards and overgrown lots, litter and household debris, and furniture (such as sofas), designed for indoor use only, on porches. These ordinances are available elsewhere on this website.

St. Pauls also retains a Code Enforcement Officer, whose job it is to make sure that everyone does his or her best to make their property as neat and as attractive as possible.

Tina Odom, St. Pauls' Code Enforcement Officer, acts upon information about unkempt yards and other violations, mainly from neighbors, but also from police officers, businesses, Public Works Department employees, Town Commissioners and many other people. 

Once the Code Enforcement Officer receives information, or complaint or inquiry, about a yard that is overgrown or not being tended, the Officer visits the property and ascertains whether it is in compliance or not. If it is, then no action needs be taken.

If a yard or property is deemed to be out of compliance with Town standards, then a courtesy letter is sent and the owner is given ample opportunity to clean it up and bring it up to standards. If that is not done, then a $50 fine can be levied. If that fine is not paid, then the Town will clean the property and place a lien on it, a lien that could eventually lead to foreclosure of the property.

The easiest course of action on the part of a resident is to simply keep the grass cut, keep the weeds down and make sure the property is clean.

That course of action also insures that St. Pauls will look its best, and be safest, as flowers and veggies grace our Southern Summer.afest, when the flowers of Spring serve as a colorful gateway to Summer.
