Duties of Property Owners

It shall be the duty of all owners of property in the city upon which sidewalks have been laid to keep such walkways clean and free from obstruction. Owners of property shall report defective conditions in sidewalks to the city manager or director of public services.

All persons who own real estate in the city which abuts upon any street right-of-way shall be required to keep that portion of the right-of-way which lies between the property line and the street side of the gutter of the adjoining street free from unsightly vegetation or other things which would mar or detract from the beauty and cleanliness of the street upon which their property abuts. Any owner of business or institutional property who shall place or allow grass to grow upon the portion of the right-of-way lying between the property line and the curbline of the street upon which his real estate abuts shall keep such grass properly mowed and free from rubbish of all kinds. If such owners are not in the possession of their property, then this section shall apply to their tenants or those who have possession or control of the property.

Abandoned/Derelict Vehicles

No inoperative or unlicensed motor vehicle shall be parked, kept or stored in any right of way, and no vehicle shall at any time be in a state of major disassembly, disrepair, or in the process of being stripped or dismantled.

Roll Carts

Roll carts and recyclables containers are to be placed at curbside no later than 8:00 a.m. on the day of the collection and removed no later than 7:30 p.m. on the day of collection.

Illegal Dumping

It shall be unlawful for any owner, manager, employee, agent or independent contractor who works for a retail, commercial or institutional establishment (such persons include solicitors, vendors, etc.) to deposit materials from that business in any receptacle maintained on a sidewalk, at any other location for disposal of litter by pedestrians or motorists, or at any other unauthorized disposal site.
