Sixteenth section land used for dumping

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - An unsightly mobile home business in south Jackson earlier this month is in dire need of cleaning.

It is G and B mobile homes located on the frontage road where I55 and I20 come together just west of the Canadian National Railroad.

The business is on Sixteenth Section land owned by Jackson Public Schools. JPS issued a statement from Deputy Superintendent Michael Thomas, which says, "Jackson Public Schools has sent correspondence to the tenant advising the tenant that they need to clean up the area within a certain period of time. If they fail to do this, they will be declared to be in default and the school board will be asked to void the lease.

No taxes have been paid on the property since 2001. Lavon Gressett leases the property from Jackson schools.
