The Solid Waste Management Ordinance and the Zoning Ordinance require that certain vehicles be located out of public view.
Citizens may call any Land Use staff member with a concern within their neighborhood. A Land Use Enforcement Officer will make a site visit to determine if a violation exists and then follow up with the tenant and/or property owner to have the property brought into compliance.
The following are descriptions of regulated vehicles:
An abandoned vehicle is one that has been left on public property and/or county-owned property or left on private property without the consent of the property owner.
A junked vehicle is one that is partially damaged, dismantled or wrecked; cannot be self-propelled or moved in a manner in which it was originally intended to move; is more than 5 years old with an appraised value of less than $100; or does not display a current license plate.
A nuisance vehicle has been found to be a breeding ground for pests; a collection vessel for water and/or grass/weeds; a source of danger due to an entrapment possibility, or exposure of sharp surfaces; a danger for falling over; a collection point for trash or other noxious waste; a point of a concentration of gas, oil or other flammable or explosive materials; or a vehicle declared to be a health and safety hazard.
