How do I avoid City violations or citations?

Some local governments have Nuisance Ordinances set up to ensure that all citizens have the opportunity to enjoy the neighborhood & the surroundings. Here is a list of the most common reasons that a property could be in violation of local ordinances:

  • Vehicle(s) parked on the grass.
  • Furniture, mattresses, appliances, cardboard boxes, or building materials, stored in yard, front porch or driveway.
  • Indoor furniture on the front porch, deck, patio, balcony, or in the yard.
  • Loud music or other noises.
  • Large gatherings.
  • An inoperable, un-inspected, or unregistered vehicle parked on the property.
  • Trash can or recycling bin remaining at the curb after pick-up day.
  • Trash, furniture, appliances, or other household items not discarded properly.
  • High grass or yard not being properly maintained.

but also to the interests of others..."
