The Department of Community Maintenance Compliance Division would like to remind residents that it is against City Ordinance to place or store unattended items on City sidewalks and/or on City property.
According to DCM head John Perry, if you wish to leave an item out for a friend to collect or leave an item with a “free” sign attached so someone may choose to take it, you need to leave the items on your property for the safety of the public.
According to Chapter 26, Article 2:
A. No person shall sweep into or deposit in any gutter, street or other public place within the City the accumulation of yard waste (leaves, grass or twigs) or litter from any building or lot or from a public or private sidewalk or driveway.
B. Persons owning or occupying property shall keep the sidewalk and gutter in front of their premises free of litter and yard waste.
