For some time now the borough of Westville has been strictly enforcing its Housing Code ordinance pertaining to unregistered/abandoned motor vehicles. The borough has also been citing people who leave their trash cans on the curb after trash has been picked up. External-content.duckduckgo-1

We long have been advocates for citing homeowners/landlords who have unlicensed, unregistered vehicles stored on their properties. They are unsightly and are safety hazards.  They are also detrimental to the neighborhood where they are located and depreciate the value of properties in those neighborhoods.

We commend the Westville police and borough officials for their diligence. Hopefully, other communities nearby will also enforce their codes pertaining to this issue and do the same. We also appreciate that this information is being shared with the public. Keeping the people informed is one more way of letting taxpayers know that those people they employ are doing their job. 

 

+++++

It is hereby determined and declared that the placing, abandonment, leaving, keeping or storage out-of-doors of any motor vehicle not currently in use and not licensed for the current license year or any unused machinery or equipment on public or private lands in the Borough of Westville is contrary and inimical to the public welfare in that such articles so placed, abandoned, left, kept or stored attract or may attract persons of tender years who, being so attracted, may play in and about them and be injured in so doing, and in that such articles so placed, abandoned, left, kept or stored out-of-doors, exposed to the elements, deteriorate and in themselves are unsightly and, deteriorating, become more unsightly and are detrimental to and depreciate the value of properties in the neighborhood where they are located and in the Borough of Westville as a whole.
