City of Charleston Reminds Residents to Remove Hazards from Property

Posted by: editor

That ordinance requires owners to abate health, fire, flooding and unsightly hazards on their property.  This includes cutting weeds, grass or trees, removing garbage, rubbish and other unsightly and unsanitary articles and things, including, but not limited, to abandoned motor vehicles.  Ordinance 91-5 also calls for the removal of all fire and flooding hazards, the elimination of stagnant pools of water or any other unsanitary thing, place, or condition which might become a breeding place for mosquitoes, flies and germs, and the removal of any building or buildings that constitute a fire or other hazard.  A full copy of the ordinance is available at City Hall.
