Mint Hill commissioners are giving one town resident several more weeks to move some cars from her property at 7319 Nelson Road or the town will remove them for her.

Mint Hill Code Enforcement Officer Margie Nichols says the town has received complaints about old vehicles on the property for more than a year, and numerous notices of violation have been issued. As a result, on Nov. 28, Nichols issued a final violation notice to property owner Ruthie S. Marciante and the owner of the junked motor vehicles, Christoper D. Linam.

Marciante appealed the notice to commissioners last week, saying the cars were licensed and should not be considered junked or abandoned. Staff said her claims of compliance were questionable.

Commissioners gave Marciante until April 1 to come into compliance, meaning she could choose to remove the cars or properly store them out of sight.

Town survey

Mint Hill is conducting an online park survey at the request of the Mint Hill Parks and Recreation Committee. Residents are encouraged to participate.

The survey asks questions about park use and what activities and programs residents would like to see added. The survey will remain active for about a month, then results will be used as the Parks and Recreation committee looks at ways to improve recreational facilities. To take the survey, visit www. mint hill .com and click on "Parks and Recreation Survey."
