Description

Urban county executive form of government; abandoned personal property. Provides that any county that has adopted the urban county executive form of government (Fairfax County) may, by ordinance, provide that it shall be unlawful for any person to place, leave, or abandon on any real property in the county, or within specified districts within the county, any dilapidated furniture, appliance, machinery, equipment, shopping cart, building material, or other item or personal property, which is either in a wholly or partially rusted, wrecked, junked, dismantled, or inoperative condition and which is not completely enclosed within a building. The ordinance shall provide that any such item which remains on the real property for a period of seven days after a notice of violation is given to the owner of such personal property shall be presumed to be abandoned and subject to being removed from the real property by the county or its agents without further notice. In the event any such item is so removed, the cost of removal, including an administrative fee in the amount of $150.00, shall be charged to the owner of the personal property. No such ordinance shall apply to any real property used for the purpose of a licensed junk dealer or an establishment engaged in the repair, rebuilding, reconditioning, or salvaging of equipment. The ordinance may provide that a violation of the ordinance shall constitute a Class 1 misdemeanor. Read the Bill »
