Council set to amend Newton’s nuisance code
After spening a good portion of April’s meetings discussing Newton’s current nuisance ordinances, the Newton City Council will look to amend those at tonight’s meeting.
The ordinance would “require property owner accountability and provide a more useful enforcement tool for staff” by replacing Title 2, Chapter 13, Articles 1 and 2 with new code requirements. Specifically adressed in the new language are perpetual garage sales, limiting time on Ty-Vek covered homes and storage of vehicles in the right-of-way.
Director of Finance and Development and Acting City Administrator Bryan Friedman explained in his council report the amendments’ objective “clearly aligns with ‘Newton’s Future,’ the recently adopted comprehensive plan” and that “holding all property owners accountable for their property performance and improving the enforcement tools and regulations is a critical first step.”
