Clallam County commissioners are considering a two-tiered junk-vehicle ordinance allowing more disabled cars on larger lots.
They will discuss the proposed revision next Monday’s work session at 9 a.m. in the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St.
After last week’s public hearing on the proposed ordinance, the commissioners decided to review the comments at a work session Monday.
They made several revisions, but the only one that produced disagreement was how many junk vehicles would trigger the ordinance.
Under the proposed ordinance if the county receives two written complaints about a property with five or more junk vehicles visible from a road or property within 600 feet, the parcel can be declared a nuisance.
The proposed ordinance allows up to six junk vehicles if they are adequately screened. Under state law, more than six junk vehicles constitutes a junk yard.
