GREENFIELD, Ind. (AP) - Owners of unkempt properties could face fines under an enforcement program launched by a central Indiana city.

Greenfield Police Chief John Jester tells the Daily Reporter ( ) he asked Mayor Chuck Fewell about an enforcement program after police were called to several properties that were “loaded with trash” and posed health and safety hazards.

Police plan to ticket homeowners who are violating city ordinances regarding rubbish and nuisances and will follow up to ensure the violations are corrected.

Examples of violations include improperly disposing of garbage, allowing trees or shrubbery to obstruct public walkways and emitting smoke or noxious odors.

Jester says the goal of the enforcement push is to ensure that people take care of their properties.
