Public Nuisance / Abandoned Property Information

​Public Nuisance Code
A public nuisance is a thing, act, or use of property which endangers life, health, property, safety, or welfare of the general public. You can view the Spring Lake Park Code of Ordinances here. 

              Typical common nuisances include:  

  •     Accumulation of junk, garbage, and equipment not being used
  •     Inoperable or junk vehicles
  •     Parking on unimproved surfaces such as grass
  •     Overgrown trees, shrubs, weeds, and grass
  •     Vehicle maintenance in a residential area
  •     Garbage cans in the public right of way or left unattended
  •     Wood storage that encourages infestation

Should the complaint investigation found to be true, the property owner in which the nuisance is located will be contacted and advised of the situation with required corrections within an allotted amount of time. Failure to correct nuisance violations will result in the issuance of an Administrative Offense ticket carrying fines as outlined within the Spring Lake Park fee schedule. Investigation and correction of a public nuisance can take anywhere from 15-60 days depending on the owner cooperation.
