Huntington is enforcing a new ordinance that prohibits tall weeds and grass, litter, junked cars, and the outdoor storage of mattresses and other items not intended for outdoor use.
Beginning Monday, violators will be issued on-the-spot citations. Previously, the city gave owners 10 days to clean up their properties before issuing citations.
Violators will be fined $100 for the first offense. The fine will increase to $200 for the second offense, $300 for the third offense and $500 for each subsequent violation within a 12-month period.
