Council approves registry for vacant buildings
Owners of vacant homes, other buildings will be required to register
The owners of vacant buildings in Newton will soon be required to register those buildings with the city.
At Monday night’s marathon city council meeting, councilors unanimously approved a revision to the city’s nuisance ordinance that established the registry and the registration requirement. The council waived the second and third readings, and unanimously adopted the new resolution.
Planning and Zoning Director Erin Chambers said the goal was to improve lines of communication in the event of code violations.
