Mayor wants fake flowers removed from lawn

Chipley City Council members discussed the need for a private property standards ordinance at the council’s June workshop on June 6.

Mayor Linda Cain had a list of 52 properties from around the city that she said need cleaning up, and the primary property she was concerned with was a house on Main Street, where the lawn is decorated with artificial flowers.

“Those silk flowers look ridiculous, you mean to say we can’t do anything about it?” the mayor asked City Code Enforcement Officer David Pettis Jr.

“We don’t have a code against it,” Pettis said. The flowers remained in the lawn throughout the year.
