Council discusses issue of nuisance enforcement

The Cuba City Council returned to a recurring topic of debate at their August 7 meeting: nuisance complaints. Ward 1 Alderman Don Mizell said he has fielded a number of citizen complaints in recent weeks about nuisance properties, particularly those with overgrown grass that needs to be cut. He wanted to know what was being done to curb the citywide problem.
