The Clarion-Ledger, 5/2/7

Dilapidated housing and junked cars will be targeted, ticketed and removed one way or the other, Melton told the nearly 40 people who attended the staff meeting he called Tuesday in City Council chambers.

“Right now, you’re scatter shooting. … We’re not going to do it that way anymore unless you think that it’s (an emergency),” Melton told the group. “What we’re going to do is concentrate on one neighborhood, one ward at a time and just clean it.”
