Junk in, but no junk out

By the county not enforcing its laws on illegal garbage and junk in the first place, I think it created this situation.

Why doesn’t Fayette County enforce its illegal garbage and junk laws• What are the duties of the code-enforcement officers• Why do we need one• What is his/her name• Do they have phone numbers• Can you locate them any time?

I’d refer to the cemetery “junkyard” (Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Dunbar Township). Would any of the county commissioners or ones in charge put their loved ones in there• I think not.

Neighboring residents placed scrap parts on the land. Perpetrators were given 30 days to clean up, then didn’t. Then they were given another 30 days and so on. This is a joke.

A local pastor is trying to determine who owns the cemetery so his church can legally become its caretakers. That had to have been a difficult decision for an area pastor. I commend him for trying to find how his church could care for the cemetery.

By the county not enforcing its laws on illegal garbage and junk in the first place, I think it created this situation.

Garbage and junk attracts rats and snakes. No sense in complaining — who cares• Not Uniontown or the code-enforcement officers.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
