There are eyesores all over Selma. Dilapidated, burned and abandoned houses adorn street corners all over town. Trash can be seen on streets, and weeds are thriving in a place that lacks proud homeowners and strong code enforcement.

The city will host a code enforcement meeting June 30, in which citizens can voice their concerns about what is being done — or not done — to keep Selma beautiful.

Not only hould every person who lives in Selma try their best to attend this meeting, but residents should read up on the codes being enforced beforehand.
