Junk Vehicle Regulations

As of June 21, 2007, covering a junk vehicle with a tarp will no longer suffice as shielding it from view in a public place. An ordinance passed by the City Council declared all junked vehicles nuisances and a hazard to public safety and prohibits the location of junked vehicles in drives, rights-of-ways, or any place visible to the public regardless of whether the vehicle is covered or uncovered.

Owners should move such vehicles from public access and view to a secure and screened location as soon as possible to avoid complaints and fines.
