This is a State law that says no property owner or occupant shall maintain or permit a nuisance. Once again a nuisance is defined as anything that bothers or annoys more than just one neighbor.
Under the State law a court can actually take someone's property away from them for up to a year. Because this is such a serious sanction, the State law requires two prior nuisance incidents, provable by clear and convincing evidence, then a city attorney 30-day warning letter, then a third nuisance incident after the 30 days is up, before bringing the court case.
So far every property has quieted down after getting the 30-day letter and the City hasn’t had to ask a court to take a property away yet. This state law defines nuisance activity to include criminal activity such as drug dealing, prostitution, etc.
