City Council to discuss public nuisance ordinances
Despite municipal elections Tuesday, Salisbury City Council will hold its regularly scheduled meeting at 4 p.m.
On the agenda is a proposed public hearing date for Nov. 17 to address possible legislation for chronic violators of overgrown vegetation ordinances and public nuisance ordinances.
The N.C. General Assembly adopted two laws in 2009 that allow cities to annually notice chronic violators of vegetative nuisance and public nuisance ordinances.
The addition to the city code would cut down site visits more than 30 percent, fine chronic violators, and will hopefully propel property owners to take more responsibility of their properties.
Also on the agenda will be updates on the downtown parking lot improvements, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Community Garden, an insight into geography awareness week, and the introduction to a new downtown police officer, Rebecca Sexton.
