Lisa Hobbs photo Warren Countys Codes Department has attempted to get debris removed from property in the Irving College area. The failed attempt prompted the first meeting of the countys committee to consider unresolved issues.
A dispute over debris and tall grass intensified Monday during the inaugural meeting of the county’s Hearing Panel for Overgrown Vegetation.The gathering was called to address an unresolved overgrowth vegetation complaint issued by Warren County Codes/ Environmental Department director Richard Thompson to property owner Christine Hill, who owns land at the intersection of Hill Road and Beersheba Highway in Irving College.Thompson says he inspected the property prior to the meeting and no noticeable changes have been made despite his notice to the owner the property is in violation of current county code pertaining to overgrown vegetation and debris.“I’ve been there two more times since the original complaint, May 31 and today.

Is there a law on the books?” asked Pam.
