Dear Editor,

Concerning the beautification of Alexander City, is there anything that can be done to eradicate weeds, vines and kudzu on vacant lots inside the business district?

It must be a terrible eyesore especially when bringing in visitors for the purpose of establishing new businesses. One case in point is the area on Cherokee Road between Radio Shack and JMS Tires. That section of town reminds me of a Tarzan jungle movie inhabited by snakes, mosquitoes and all kinds of wild critters. There must be some beautiful hardwood trees hidden from view by the overgrowth.

Rough, bumpy, patched-up streets is another area of concern around Alex City. I understand pipes need to be dug up and repaired periodically but it seems there is never a smooth surface to drive over when the hole is filled. Never should a driver attempt to sip on their coffee while cruising around good ol’ A.C.

Just my thoughts on a couple of things to make our city more attractive and appealing.
