While we recognize that a majority of these instances are doing illegally, unless the City can get information about who may have placed those items there (license plate, description of the vehicle, etc.), the City has no choice but to require the adjacent property owner to remove and properly dispose of those items. Even though these items may be placed in the City right-of-way, it is the responsibility of the adjacent property owner to keep that portion of the alley clean of debris, tall grass, overgrown vegetation, etc.
Please call the store that owns the cart. If it remains after three days, or if there is no store name on the cart, please call the city’s Code Compliance division at 360-442-5093.
