Lamar Police Stress Abandoned Vehicle Codes

Code Enforcement issues affect the quality of life of the citizens of a community and involve matters such as zoning, overgrown lots or yards, inoperative vehicles, maintenance of structures, illegal signs and public nuisances.  Code enforcement is important not only for health and sanitation purposes, such as controlling rats and vermin, but also plays a part in keeping property values of a community high. 

The City of Lamar has stressed keeping Lamar clean and beautiful by providing free city clean up days over the past several years.  The Code Enforcement Officers of the Lamar Police Department work daily to identify and clean up problem areas of the community. 

With that in mind, the Lamar Police Department would like to remind citizens of city ordinance 7-3-20 which reads, “Any vehicle left standing on a highway right-of-way for more than seventy-two (72) hours shall be presumed to be abandoned”.  That means you can’t leave a car, truck, trailer, RVs, etc. parked on a street for more than seventy-two (72) hours or it could be issued a citation and towed. 

The Lamar Police Department would like to encourage the citizens of Lamar to help us keep Lamar a clean and livable city.
