According to the Morgan County revenue commissioner’s office, Delma Wallace and Steve Jackson own this property at 564 Woodall Road.

Hiding in plain sight

Location: 564 Woodall Road.

Description: A commuter who
drives past the home said the property “has been an eyesore for years. This is a public nuisance that a lot of people travel by on a daily basis. I have driven past this property six days a week for eight years, and I’ve never seen it clean.”

Owner: According to the Morgan County revenue commissioner’s office, Delma Wallace and Steve Jackson own the property. Owners were not listed in the phone book and were unavailable for comment.

Ordinance: None. The Morgan County Commission does not have limited home rule or governance, so it cannot regulate property with junk or high grass as do municipalities.

Responsible officials: Property is in Morgan County Commissioner Jeff Clark’s District 1. The property is in Trinity’s police jurisdiction, but Trinity Town Clerk Barbara Clark said the town cannot regulate property outside the city limits.
