A landowner thinks there has been discriminatory application of Mona's cleanup ordinance, he has told the Town Board.
Attorney L. Douglas Monson sent the board a letter in behalf of Maurice Jones. Monson wrote that he and his client conducted a tour of Mona on July 13, 1990, and compiled a list of 26 locations where they feel there is as much need for cleanup as there is on Jones' property at the south end of Main Street.Jones does not consent, said Monson, to a suggestion by the town that Clarence Phillipsen, owner of Nephi Auto Wrecking, clear Jones' property. If the town hires Phillipsen to remove vehicles from Jones' property, Jones will take court action, Monson wrote.
Monson has also sent a letter to Phillipsen telling him should the town pursue its intent to have him clear the property, Jones will involve both the town and Phillipsen in litigation.
Attorny Don Eyre Jr., representing Mona, responded to the Monson letter by informing him that six Mona residents besides Jones have received cleanup orders. Three of the property owners who received notices have cleaned up their property, Eyre said.
The orders were sent to property owners after the county sanitarian made a review and inspected the sites.
