In brainstorming ways to eliminate the blight in the city of Marion, City Council revisited the idea of starting a “mow-to-own” program.

The potential program would allow those living next to city owned lots to use “sweat equity” to pay for the lots, according to councilwoman Robin Fouce. Some residents have already been mowing, weeding and cleaning up city owned lots for years, and this program would give them the opportunity to obtain the land they already maintain.
