At Monday evening’s Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting, the room was filled with people opposed to what they thought were overreaches in a proposed county nuisance ordinance.

While the proposed ordinance was not on the agenda, most of the meeting time was taken up by discussion of it when Trigg County Hollis Alexander opened the floor for public comments. Almost everyone in the audience was in opposition.

“If we wanted zoning out in the county, we’d move to the city,” said Kevin Shelton. “You just can’t change people.”

Ray Wyatt said people should talk to their neighbors and offer to help them with the cleanup if they have a problem with how their property looks. Most people would be happy to accept such help, he said.

Gary Riddle said that while such an ordinance would start simple, it would lead to more drastic regulations.
