Friday, June 28, 2013

The "Wall of Shame" was topic of interest of the June 24, 2013 KSLA News 12 Editorial. KSLA General Manager James Smith, posed the question "what does a city do when it can't get it's citizens to clean up their property". Smith highlighted the City of Mansfield and Mayor Curtis W. McCoy's mission to clean the city and improve the quality of life for citizens by implementing city ordinances and publishing the "Wall of Shame". The "Wall of Shame" web page exposes blighted properties within the city by displaying pictures of these properties. 

Smith went on to express his opinion of the "Wall of Shame" stating, "I think this is a fantastic idea that other cities should consider. There isn't a town in the ArkLaTex that isn't faced with the same problem."
