In my town, there is the following ordinance:
10-1.6 Declaration of Public Nuisance
j. The accumulation or storage of junk, including tires, lumber, household appliances or parts thereof, inoperable vehicles, or parts thereof, furniture, sinks, toilets, cabinets or other household fixtures
, equipment or parts thereof, rubbish, garbage, debris or salvage materials, which constitute visual blight and are visible from a public street, alley or adjoining property;I have cleaned up the property as requested, however, code enforcement and the zoning officer are demanding they have the right to access and inspect the entire property.Are they allowed to do this? It is a very old property and of course, would not meet current code requirements. I am very concerned. What rights do I have.
