Anna looks to help neighbors spruce up their properties

staff reports
When code enforcement officers encounter a property that needs some sprucing up, they will offer use of the tools to property owner if they don’t have what’s needed to get the work done.

Anna officials say they want neighbors to know that they understand everyone can use a little help from time to time.  That’s why the city has put together a trailer loaded with tools. mowers, edgers, shovels, rakes and just about everything else a person would need to bring their property up to code.  When code enforcement officers encounter a property that needs some sprucing up, they will offer use of the tools to property owner if they don’t have what’s needed to get the work done.   

City officials say the program is in line with Anna’s motto that “community is built here.”
