Nuisance ordinance bogs down

RIZTVILLE – The City Council continued discussions on the amended nuisance ordinance, May 3. The ordinance applies to unsightly and/or unsanitary conditions on property within the city. Several questions were raised over the proposed changes, as well as some unchanged portions of the ordinance.
A particular stumbling block appears to be the idea of adding unpaid charges for the clean up of offending properties to the tax rolls.
Adams County Treasurer Kayla Meise said “that’s more of a notion” and has a meeting scheduled with city staff to discuss the idea further.
