ARDMORE -- The City of Ardmore and the Ardmore Main Street Authority are teaming up to crack down on city ordinances.
This week, downtown business owners will receive letters in the mail listing those rules city leaders say are overlooked.
Officials say chipping paint, broken windows, and on-street parking have gotten out of hand.
Code enforcement officers will be surveying the area closely. If business owners don't comply, they could end up in municipal court.
Carey Baldwin, Main Street Authority director, says this is all to make downtown Ardmore a place to be proud of.
"We are all going toward same goal, to make downtown a beautiful place for people to go and bring their friends to."
Starting May 5th, city leaders say they will start aggressively enforcing ordinances aimed at maintaining and improving the downtown historical district.
