Officials ban Hampton man from city property after alleged threats

      Hampton landlord Milton Heyde was banned from all city-owned property Aug. 27 after he made perceived threats to city employees and elected officials in a series of letters last month.

     Heyde for the past several years has been battling the City of Hampton over numerous nuisance violations filed against his rental properties. The August letters, which were received at City Hall, requested the addresses of each City of Hampton employee living inside city limits, including the council, firefighters and members of the police department. Heyde's intent was to "inspect those properties in a manner that is legal" to determine if they were in violation of city nuisance ordinance or other code.

       City officials denied Heyde's request for the address list. In a letter dated Aug. 27, Heyde informed City Hall of his intent to speak during the public comment period at the Aug. 28 council meeting.
