Opa-locka mayor to residents: Take down hanging underwear



According to Opa-locka Mayor Myra Taylor, a city guard rail is not a place for residents to hang their underwear.

During a recent City Commission meeting, Taylor asked City Manager Kelvin Baker for the second time to have residents remove their unmentionables from a guard rail behind an apartment building on Ali Baba Avenue, near Northwest 22nd Avenue.

Taylor asked Baker initially on Feb. 27 to contact the owner of the apartment building.

“Tell the people their underwear must come down,” she said. “I could say the drawers must come down.”

Taylor suggested placing a fence there to stop residents from airing out their clean — or dirty — laundry.
