Code Enforcement Spring 2021
Letter to Citizens
Dear Nelsonville Citizens,
Spring is here and the City of Nelsonville Code Enforcement Office would like to notify everyone that this office has begun diligently enforcing City Ordinances. We are focusing on safety and improving community appearance by working with citizens and property owners to improve and maintain property aesthetics and value. This is attained through enforcement of property maintenance codes.
Code Enforcement procedures have been updated and are as follows:
If you are in violation of the city code, you will be notified by mail or in person. For non-hazardous violations, the first letter sent is mailed as a courtesy notice. It is intended to advise that a violation of a law or municipal code has been observed. If you receive one of these letters you may contact the Code Enforcement Office at 740-753-1314 with any questions.
This letter will also inform you of the date that the violation needs to be corrected. If the violation is not corrected by the date given, you will receive a citation. The fine for the first offence will not exceed $150.00 for each violation(s). Each day in which a violation continues can be a separate offence. The fine for a second offence will not exceed $250.00 for each violation(s). Each day in which a violation continues can be a separate offence. Our goal is to have citizens voluntarily abate violations without taking further enforcement action.
A list of the most common code violations can be found on the City’s website under the "Code" main menu item by clicking Common Violations.
We sincerely appreciate your efforts in partnering with us to keep our city clean and safe for all who resides in, visit and drive through Nelsonville.
