Two seats are opening up on the board of directors of the Corinth Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Both the Alcorn County Board of Supervisors and Corinth Board of Mayor and Aldermen, in meetings on Tuesday, acknowledged the resignation of Danny Timmons, who is choosing to retire from the board as his term expires in October.

The county supervisors also received notice of the exit of Vicki Vanderford, who has left the position of director of operations at Holiday Inn Express. The term for that seat, which is reserved for a hotel industry representative and is jointly appointed by the city and county, runs through October 2024.

The seat vacated by Timmons is reserved for a restaurant industry representative and is also jointly appointed by the city and county.

The boards are considering replacements and no action has been taken.

Terms for the seven-member tourism board are four years.

In other business before the city board this week, another large group of properties targeted for cleanup was before the board for action.

The board voted to adjudicate on three properties, meaning the city will proceed with cleanup if owners do not – 1613 Foote Street, 414 Cemetery Street and 1325 Breckenridge Street.

The board scheduled public hearings for the next regular meeting, 5 p.m. Sept. 21, for another group of properties entering the process: 1511 Allen Street, 914 Ross Street, 1103 Tate Street, 1514 Allen Street, 1711 Allen Street, 303 Johns Street, 301 Penn Street, 1500 Bunch Street, 1415 Childs Street, 1411 Foote Street, 1420 Childs Street, 1417 Childs Street, 1415 Foote Street, 1405 Foote Street, 109 Young Street, 1515 Meigg Street, 1503 Wood Street, 1127 Johns Street, 1206 Tate Street and four others with no street address given.

Code Enforcement Officer Kim Ratliff encourages any of the property owners to contact him if they need direction on what actions need to be taken to comply with the city code.
