Police will warn, cite if not following ordinance

PALM VALLEY – Any resident with a trailer sitting in their front yard … be ready to move it. The city’s police department has been given the go-ahead to deal with the minor concern.

On Tuesday night, Police Chief Alvaro Garcia requested the city council rework the parking ordinance to include the wording of “trailers,” so those can’t be parked in the front yard or in driveways for more than three days every 30 days.

But after several minutes of explanation by city attorney Jason Mann, officials determined the city’s current ordinance does include the stipulation and it can be backed up by law.

Garcia had suggested because the city’s ordinance did not directly use the word “trailer” his department had no ability to enforce the matter.

Mann spent several minutes reading from and explaining the city’s ordinance.
