Owners of four properties declared nuisances, including a building at an apartment complex claimed to be “not fit for human habitation,” were given 30 days last week by the Searcy City Council to clean up their properties after public hearings were held.

Tom Kelso, owner of the Briarwood Apartments at 2103 W. Beebe-Capps Expressway, told the council that he has had an ongoing problem for two years with “abandonment, squatters and persons that do not live there that have accrued issues that were dangerous.”
