Supporters say problems with overgrown weeds, abandoned cars and
other eyesores need to be addressed. Opponents say people move to
rural areas partly to get away from government oversight and regulations.

The county's planning and zoning department sent letters to property owners in seven unincorporated towns this month, explaining the proposal to resolve nuisance problems. The towns are Bridgeport, Bavaria, Salemsborg, Falun, Glendale, Hedville, Kipp and Mentor.

Vicki Koepsel, the county's director of planning and zoning, says the public will be able to express opinions on the topic at study sessions scheduled for March in Salina.

The Hutchinson newspaper reported Friday that the resolution could take effect sometime in May or June.
