Ordinance Passed by Council
Has Emergency Clause.
FIVE DAYS' NOTICE GIVEN
Old Law Amended to Provide for
Removal of TJnelghtlv Debris or
Dangerous Places and for
Filling of Stagnant Pools.
"With the passage yesterday by the
City Council of a drastic clean-up or
dinance and the appropriation of $5000
to nrovide funds for its enforcement.
the way was cleared for a vigorous
campaign to start at once In all parts
of the city to require the cleaning; up
of all vacant or ill-kept property.
The ordinance, which was passed by
unanimous vote of the Council, con
tained an emergency clause, making- It
effective at once. It provides in bxkii
tlon to the cutting of weeds, brush and
erass at the expense of the property
owners, the removal of unsightly de
bris da.nsreroua trees, poles and em
bankments and the filling of pools of
stagnant water. Plans will be com
pleted within a few days by the Publio
"Works Department, the Health Bureau,
the Police Bureau and the City Engi
neer for the commencement of the
In addition to using the new ordi
nance, the Council proposes to enforce
strictly an ordinance now on the books
providing for the arrest of persons
failing to clean up their premises. The
new ordinance provides for posting a
notice on any property which needs
cleaning, giving the owner suffloient
time In which to comply. i
In case the owner fails to respond
within five days, . the city will order
the work done and the aotual cost of
this, with an additional fee of 2 for
eaoh lot' for overhead expense, will be
assessed on the docket of city liens
against the property and will be col
lectible In the same manner as other
city Improvement assessments. Last
Summer a similar method was used in
forcing the cutting of weeds,! but the
$2 overhead oharge was not made. The
old ordinance only applied to weed
cutting. Property-owners are obliged under
the new ordinanoe to cut the weeds
as soon as they get ten Inches In
height. This ordinance will be en
forced strictly on property owned by
persons living outside the city. For
residents of the city the police regula
tions will be used. The policemen on
the various beats will submit a list of
lots needing cleaning and the owners
notified. For those falling to comply
with the order arrest and prosecution
will follow on the charge of "failure
to abate a nuisance." .
The clean-up campaign will extend
through the remainder of June and
through July, August and September.
Next year It will start May 1 and end
