At their October 11 Regular Town Meeting, the Board of Town Commissioners passed, by majority vote, Ordinance 2016-03: Residential Property Standards.   The new ordinance replaces the current Town Ordinance 88-1: Litter & Weeds, but still incorporates many of it’s features. The new ordinance addresses residents complaints repeated over the years, that violations of existing Town Ordinances were not being successfully enforced —a problem that recent administrations have learned could be handled more effectively with the development and implementation of a Town Code. Ordinance 2016-03 now sets certain standards for properties that are in compliance with the Prince George’s County Code, and similar to many other area municipalities.  Input by residents was solicited and incorporated into working drafts over the past couple of months, and final review was conducted by the Town’s Attorney.
