When trash and debris accumulate, it is not only unsightly but very unhealthy.
Old junk, garbage, tires, rubbish, furniture, appliances, car parts or anything else stored outside can be dangerous and is prohibited.
Violators are issued a warning notice to perform specific action within an allotted time frame. If the warning notice goes unheeded, violators face a $2,000 fine.
If the violation is chronically uncorrected, the case may be presented to the Building Standards Commission, City Council or District Court for action. Costs for "forced clean-up" result in liens against the property in violation.
