If your Navasota neighbor has an old car rusting in their front yard, you may want to let them know, the city is declaring war on junk vehicles and will begin hunting them down, next week.
The City’s Kris Gruver explains that the city will be looking for junked vehicles on private property, and that the owners of any that are discovered to be visible from the street will be receiving a letter from him about it.
That letter, Gruver tells Navasota News, will outline the owner’s options; they can either move it, or speak to the judge about it.
If owners do neither by the time city staff conducts a second sweep later this month, he continues, they’ll get a second letter giving them ten days to move the vehicle. After that, the will courts get involved.
He says an motion will be filed in Municipal Court and a court date set to explain it to the judge. If it’s still not removed after that, the city will remove it on its own. And if it comes to that, the owner will not be getting it back. And on top of that, Gruver adds the owners of removed vehicles can also be subjected to up to $200 dollars in fines.
The junk vehicle sweeps will begin on Tuesday, January 17th. You’ve been warned. For more information call City Hall 936-825-64-75.
