Proposed nuisance policy revised
The Lake Township trustees are hoping a revised nuisance abatement policy will give them the means to address complaints about noxious weeds and similar issues.
The first reading of the policy was heard Tuesday: “The zoning inspector, administrator, or solicitor shall initiate a nuisance investigation upon receipt of a resolution from the board of trustees, Lake Township to proceed and/or a written complaint from an adjacent property owner on forms so provided by Lake Township.”
The proposed revised policy is a streamlined version of a policy introduced last month.
The trustees will hold two other readings of the policy.
The township already has policies covering junk vehicles and excessive noise.
Melanie Bowen, who chairs the board of trustees, said the new policy can also be applied to businesses and problems with broken signs and windows.
The trustees will be accepting input from the public on the policy during the next readings, she said.
