The Mamou Board of Aldermen will vote next month on adding penalties to its blighted property ordinance. According to Mayor Ricky Fontenot, there are no penalties for those who do not clean or demolish blighted properties. However, the proposed ordinance calls for fines and jail time for those who do not comply with the law. The council will consider the measure at its May 8 meeting.
