Code violation decisions delayed

Holloway cites wrongful use of enforcement title

Public hearings and possible action to declare them nuisances were scheduled on eight buildings at Monday night’s meeting of the Quinlan City Council. The process stopped on a split vote after property owner Karen Houston-Holloway spoke to the council.

Councilmen Brandon Frazier and Tommy Underwood voted against tabling the process.

Holloway owned properties that were included on the city code violation list.

She said she received three certified letters in early March from the city, signed “Clayton Jackson, Code Enforcement Officer-Badge 810.”

“I was very happy to see that the city of Quinlan was finally ready to clean up the city, and I agree that these three properties, two that I purchased from the county with the intent to improve since they had been sitting untouched for years, were in need of some updating and cosmetic repairs,” Holloway said.
