A proposed countywide nuisance ordinance received a largely positive response at Monday evening’s Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting.

Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander said it would be August at the earliest before the law could officially be on the books. But he thinks one of the best aspects of the proposed ordinance is that it will give Trigg County Solid Waste Coordinator Jesse Thomas the ability to enforce state nuisance laws that are already in effect.

“I hope to have language drawn up, with the help of the [Trigg] County Attorney [Randy Braboy] … before July 1, and maybe have the first reading in the first reading of July,” said Alexander. “After that, it’ll be two weeks before the second reading, and then once it’s published in the newspaper, it becomes law.”

Alexander asked Braboy to remove language that sets a maximum grass height of 12 inches and other changes that magistrates proposed before the ordinance is presented for a first reading later this year.
