ANDERTON: Proposed property ordinance a violation of private property rights

MILLEDGEVILLE — Here we go again. The Baldwin County Commission, at the behest of our county Environmental Compliance Officer, has dredged up the unpopular and dangerously-at-odds-with-our-Constitution “Property Maintenance Ordinance,” only this time it’s being marketed as a “Safe Property Standards Ordinance” At least one commissioner, Sammy Hall, has stated on the record that, “I’d rather take the beating and do what we have to do,” referencing the “firestorm” that occurred in the community the last time the Baldwin County Commission addressed the topic. That would seem to imply that his mind, at least, is already made up before the Public Hearing that they reportedly plan to schedule has even occurred.

For this reason, I encourage all of the citizens of Baldwin County to direct their attention to the upcoming Public Hearing by the Baldwin County Commission concerning further governmental restrictions to how you may handle your affairs on your private property. This may occur as soon as June 17, according to reports. To date, I haven’t been able to locate any public posting of the proposed ordinance, further reinforcing the sense that its implementation is already a foregone conclusion to at least some on the Commission.

Don’t let a vocal minority result in this affront to private property rights being foisted upon all of the residents of our County; please contact your commissioner and attend the Commission’s meeting to let your voice be heard.
