Like any city, the City of Kerman has ordinances to keep our city residents safe and to enhance the quality of life and provide excellent services for our community. The nuisance code is a method to prevent, discourage and/or abate certain conditions which endanger the life, health, property, safety, or welfare of the general public and to provide staff with enforcement regulations. Typical common nuisances include:
- Accumulation of junk and rubbish
- Overgrown trees, shrubs, and weeds
- Vehicle maintenance in a residential area
- Garbage cans in the public right of way
The property owner will be contacted to advise them of the situation and facilitate corrections as necessary. Fees may be assessed for failure to comply and an administrative citation may be issued. Click here for complete information on Kerman’s Nuisance Abatement ordinances.
