Due to widespread damage to many homes during last week’s winter storm, the Department of Neighborhoods (DON) Inspections and Public Service (IPS) division will suspend heavy trash code enforcement, effective immediately through Friday, March 12, 2021, to allow residents adequate time to clear debris from their properties.
The department will resume heavy trash code enforcement on March 15, 2021.
