Last night during a Lima City Council Community and Economic Development Committee Meeting- the 5th Junk Auto meeting took place with a few local landlords present.
Some of them felt that the fifty dollar fine a junk auto owner would get for the first time- wasn’t fair to landlords because they’ll likely get stuck with paying the fine to then get the auto towed.
5th Ward Councilor Teresa Adams explained what she felt the landlords gained from this meeting.
The Junk Auto situation is now out of the Community and Economic Development Committee’s hands- as they passed the updated junk auto ordinances.
It will now move on to the Finance Committee- where talks will go toward possibly hiring someone to assist in the identification process in removing junk autos.
