Reason for Regulation
Parking a junked vehicle in public view decreases private property value and is detrimental to the safety of the public and creates a fire hazard.
To comply with the ordinance, a vehicle meeting the definition of a junked vehicle must be removed or screened from ordinary public view. Screening devices include a fence, rapidly growing trees, or shrubbery.
The fine for a violation is a fine up to $500. In addition, the City can seek a court order to remove junk vehicles from private property.
