Jerry L. Ford, Poteau resident and real estate developer, is warning owners and future owners of real estate of an action by the Poteau City Council that would change “what you can and cannot do with your property.”
Ford noted that the legal section – of a local newspaper - on March 9, 2012 gave notice of the new ordinance which had been proposed by the city.
“It is lengthy and confusing” said Ford.
Ford is not aware of any public announcement or hearing for property owners to express their concerns and recommends that the citizens of Poteau notify the Mayor and Council that they are not in favor of changing ordinances without a notice of such and hearing on the matter.
Ford believes voters should approve the ordinance.
