The Town of Thorsby went over a number of properties that needed to be cleaned up during a meeting on May 17.

There were a number that needed clean-up work, ranging from lawn-cutting to unnecessary items being moved off the lawn.

The first property that was discussed is located at 84 Wilson Circle. The Town Council agreed unanimously that a crew needed to be sent in the clean it up. A five-day notice is to be sent first, allowing the property owner a chance to clean it up themselves.

The next property discussed was an old car wash located on U.S. Highway 31 in Thorsby. According to Thorsby Mayor Robert Hight, the property needs to have the grass cut as well as the car wash itself cleaned up as pieces of the building are falling off due to old storm damage. The council voted unanimously to have it cleaned up.

The last property voted on was a house located on Indiana Avenue. That property just needed to have the grass cut, according to Hight. The council voted to have that property cleaned up as well.

Also discussed at the meeting was whether there would be a Fourth of July celebration in Thorsby or not. Hight said there will be a celebration and that the current date set for it is June 30.
