Regular City Council Meeting
Ordinance 1st Reading - Code Enforcement:
Discuss and take appropriate action on an ordinance amending Article 36.01 of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Lubbock, to provide for clarification and improved enforcement capabilities with regard to the obstruction and maintenance of City rights-of-way, alleys, and easements.
Article 36.01 of the Lubbock Code of Ordinances addresses a broad spectrum of concerns related to rights-of-way, including the obstruction and maintenance thereof. However, specific language is lacking to sufficiently address certain obstructions, including vegetation overhanging the property line between private property and alleys or easements, as well as blockage of alleys and easements by certain activities and obstacles. The amendment seeks to add language to address these omissions, in addition to clarifying the City's ability to treat them as a public nuisance. Also added, is language clarifying the City's right to remove, at it's own expense and without notice, any obstruction that is entirely within the City's rights-of-way.
