After discussing an ordinance regulating the removal and disposal of junked and abandoned vehicles in their meeting last week, the Yazoo City Board of Mayor and Aldermen are seeking public input.
“This ordinance presents to the city a new ordinance for us to, I believe, better regulate junked and abandoned vehicles,” board attorney Sarah O’Reilly-Evans said during the Aug. 9 meeting. “It states what a junked vehicle is when it’s inoperable and is not properly licensed with the proper safety inspection sticker ... and if it remains inoperable for a continued period of more than 120 days.”
The ordinance establishes a process whereby the city building inspector and the police can notify the owners of the vehicles that they must be removed.
