Shelby County provides list of unpaid mowing bills

Posted: Updated:
SHELBY COUNTY, TN -

(WMC-TV) – Shelby County officials are working to fix the problem Memphis has with blight and rundown properties. Since May, the city issued more than 400 citations to properties with grass and overgrowth.

Out of those 400 notices, only about 100 people took care of the problem. The county mowed 214 of them.

But property owners are not paying the bills, leaving the county with a list of unpaid bills on properties they will likely have to take care of again.

The Action News 5 Investigators asked the county for that list, showing all properties and the bill due on them.

Tonight on Action News 5 at 6 p.m., Lauren Squires will take a look to see if there is a trend and find out who owes the county money.
