Hampton SignHAMPTON – A Hampton man embroiled in a nasty property dispute with city officials called the city council and challenged them to show up to an upcoming court hearing.

Milton Heyde was banned from all city property in Hampton on August 28 and called the city council via cell phone at the council September 12 meeting.

Meeting minutes show that in the phone call, Heyde ivied the city council to attend a hearing set for October 28 regarding a citation from the Hampton Police Department for a property nuisance at his property, located at 120 1st Avenue NE.

Also during the phone call, Heyde requested that certain city council members resign. He questioned why city council member Steve Harms has not been cited for failing to make repairs to siding and a chimney on his property and gave him 90 days to make the repairs or he would sue the city for what he called selective enforcement of City Code for property maintenance.

Heyde was banned from all public property in Hampton after he wanted the city to honor a man who killed 5 people at a council meeting 6 years ago in Missouri. Heyde requested that Aug. 18 be declared “Cookie Thorton (sic) Day,” in memory of Cookie Thorton (sic), Kirkwood Missouri, 2008.” Being unfamiliar with this reference, city staff did some research and learned that Charles Lee “Cookie” Thornton murdered five people at a City Council meeting in Kirkwood, Missouri, in 2008.


So they say Donald Trump mocked the physical disability of a NY Times reporter. Should he apologize?
