The City of Wellman is beginning an effort to clean up properties in town. City Administrator Nick Pacha said a property can be deemed a nuisance due to long grass, junk, and old vehicles.
The process to address issues with nuisance properties begins with a letter to the property owner that identifies the problem. Violators of the city code will then have an opportunity to go in front of the council, and will be given a grace period to clean up their yard.
If that doesn’t resolve the problem, city crews will be sent in and the property owner will be billed, or the owner will receive a municipal infraction.
