The Corinth Board of Aldermen on Tuesday set new public hearings for seven properties targeted for cleanup.

The hearings will coincide with the regular board meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. on Dec. 18. Property owners will have an opportunity to address the board about their situations at that time.

The properties are:

• 1115 Douglas Street — While the owner has kept the grass cut, the structure is a burned-out house that has been sitting for some time, and the property has been on and off the cleanup list for a few years. Code Enforcement Officer Kim Ratliff said demolition is the ultimate goal for the structure.

• Corner of Mississippi and Violet — Located in block 6 of the Speedway Addition, this property is targeted for general cleanup.

• 408 Violet Street — Tall grass and accumulated debris put this property on the list.

• 514 Lilly Street — Described as what appears to be a former rental property with tall grass.

• 1411 Foote Street and 1415 Foote Street — One is an empty lot while the other has a structure that needs demolition, said Ratliff.

• North Polk Street — With structural issues, this property near Little Zion Road is targeted for demolition.

The board also dismissed action on two properties where the city had requested cleanup — the Bonds property on Box Chapel Road and the Napier property at 230 Franklin Street — and adjudicated the cost for cleanup plus a penalty of $500 at 402 Penn Street.
