TOOK up for consideration the Board of Supervisors of Tunica County, Mississippi, the issue of having certain property cleaned up, which property was/is owned by Alonzo Luther Dungeon and Tennessee Dungeon. After a discussion of the same, Supervisor Dunn offered and moved for the adoption of the following resolution:
RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS GIVING NOTICE TO ALONZO LUTHER DUNGEON AND TENNESSEE DUNGEON
OF A HEARING TO BE HELD BEFORE THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
CONCERNING WHETHER CERTAIN PROPERTY OWNED BY ALONZO LUTHER DUNGEON AND TENNESSEE DUNGEON
SHOULD BE DETERMINED UNCLEAN AND UNSAFE, SUCH AS TO REQUIRE THE CLEANING OF SAID PROPERTY
The Board of Supervisors of Tunica County, Mississippi, acting for and on behalf of said County, do hereby find, determine and adjudicate as follows:
1. That by deed recorded in Deed Book K-3, page 409, Alonzo Luther Dungeon and Tennessee Dungeon acquired the following described property in Tunica County, Mississippi, to-wit:
The following described land situated in Section Four (4), Township Five (5) South, Range Eleven (11) West in Tunica County, Mississippi, to-wit:
From the Northeast corner of the Northwest Quarter (NW 1/4) of the Northwest Quarter (NW 1/4) of said Section Four (4), run due South a distance of 796 feet to a stake, which is the point of beginning for the lot hereby conveyed and which stake is 60 feet South of the Southeast corner of the lot heretofore conveyed by John H. Pritchard to Mildred Wells by deed dated December 21, 1961, recorded in Deed Book J-3 at page 228 of the records in the office of the Chancery Clerk of said County, and from said point of beginning run due South a distance of 60 feet to a stake; run thence due West at right angles a distance of 100 feet to a stake; run thence due North at right angles a distance of 60 feet to a stake; run thence due East a distance of 100 feet to the point of beginning (hereinafter the “Property”)
2. That the Property is located in a populated area of Tunica County.
3. That the Property has improvements on it and the Property is not being maintained such that it presents a public health and safety issue.
4. That the Property is alleged to be in need of cleaning as contemplated by Section 19-5-105 of the Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended.
5. That notice should be given to the property owner by United States registered mail, return receipt requested, receipted only by addressee, notifying them of a hearing to be held by the Board of Supervisors of Tunica County, Mississippi, to determine whether or not such a state of uncleanliness as to be administered to the public health and safety of the community; however, Tunica County understands the record title owners are deceased and that the tax rolls incorrectly show the ownership as being in the State of Mississippi.
6. That notice should be given by publication in The Tunica Times, a newspaper having general circulation in Tunica County, Mississippi.
NOW THEREFORE, based upon the above and foregoing, Andrew T. Dulaney, Attorney for the Board, is hereby authorized and directed to give notice to Leslie Sanford, 1236 Sherman, Grand Rapids, MI 49506 and by publication in The Tunica Times, a newspaper having general circulation in Tunica County, Mississippi, of a hearing to be held by the Board on Thursday, July 15, 2010, beginning at 9:00 o’clock a.m., in the Board of Supervisors’ meeting room located in the Tunica County Courthouse, 1300 School Street, Tunica, Mississippi 38676. At said hearing, the Board will determine whether or not the property previously owned by Alonzo Luther Dungeon and Tennessee Dungeon referred to above is in such a state of uncleanliness as to be a menace to the public health and safety of the community.
If, at said hearing, the Board of Supervisors finds said property to be in a state of uncleanliness as to be a menace to the public health and safety of the community, the Board will adopt a resolution adjudicating the same and if the owner of the property has not proceeded to have the property cleaned, the Board of Supervisors will have said property cleaned.
If said property is cleaned by the Board of Supervisors, the cost of said property cleaning will be assessed against the owner.
