Overgrown Yard Battle

Back in June, Potter County commissioners decided to extend Talmadge McKillip's time to get his property cleaned up, and McKillip did not have the resources to get it cleaned up.

The county decided to get the property cleaned up, and today they decided to bill McKillip for the charges.

"One reason the problem exsists, is because the land owners don't have the resources to clean it up. Realistically, we're probably going to have to step in and spend county money," said 1st Assistant County Attorney David Kemp.

The big question now is whether or not McKillip can pay the county back.

Kemp says the commissioners decided they had to try and get the taxpayer money back, and if McKillip doesn't pay, they are prepared for a lawsuit.
