Bell Park Apartment owner Mark Alexander failed to appear at a hearing in Adamsville
City Court on Oct. 25 and was cited for code violations, according to Code
Enforcement Officer Danny Daniels.

Tenant Erica Harrison did appear and told Judge Terry Wood she was moving. Wood said
all charges against Harrison would be dropped if she moved by the next court
hearing on Nov. 22.

Daniels said the Alexander is cooperating with the city in rectifying the violations.

Mark Alexander and some tenants of the building have been cited for health and
sanitation violations earlier.

A hearing on the issue was scheduled for Sept. 27 in city court, but was
continued until Oct. 25, because Erica Harrison, one of the tenants involved in
the court action, was not there

“Mark (Alexander) seems to want to work and
get it done,” Daniels said.

Alexander earlier confirmed that he is working closely with the City of Adamsville to
correct the deficiencies, which he said were blown way out of proportion.

As an example, he said he had purchased $1,000 of flooring.

He said that some of the problems arose with the previous manager. He said he was
evaluating his legal options with the proper authorities.

“The buck stops here,” he said.
