The City of Savannah held a news conference to emphasize education and compliance in regards to new amendments made to the property maintenance ordinance passed by City Council last Tuesday, November 20, 2018.
The news conference took place off of Pennsylvania Avenue (District 3), in a location that has been plagued with illegal yard parking and derelict vehicle violations.
The Code Compliance Department has created brochures for residents that explain the sections of the property maintenance ordinance that pertain to residential parking and derelict/ abandoned vehicles. Code Compliance Officers began passing out Courtesy Warning Notices today for vehicle and parking violations and will continue through the end of this year. Beginning January 2, 2019, Code Compliance Officers will begin issuing $25 citations for illegally parked cars, boats and trailers.
