Alderman Calls For More Teeth In Nuisance Ordinance


Landlords whose properties are the scenes of frequent police calls could face tougher scrutiny under an ordinance being proposed by Springfield alderman Tim Griffin.

 

The current city ordinance allows for a nuisance declaration if there have been two police calls in a 60-day period. Griffin’s proposal would alter that to allow the declaration if there have been three calls within any 12-month period.

 

The ordinance also cleans up some of the offenses to be considered a nuisance.

 

If the chief of police receives report of a nuisance property under the proposed ordinance, the city’s corporation council could then have the courts put an injunction on the property owner from renting out the property.
