OSWEGO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The third annual Code Enforcement Blits begins Friday in Oswego for the 1st and 3rd Wards.
The city’s code enforcement office and police department will be sweeping the streets for stockpiling of garbage and furniture building up in front of rental properties and homes.
The sweep will take place on the city’s West Side from Route 104 to Lake Street.
Mayor Billy Barlow says that when these codes haven’t been followed in the past, the community suffers.
“What we found a few years ago was the 1st and 3rd Wards sometimes looked like a war zone with some of the garbage, debris, and furniture being left out,” Barlow said.
The sweep will law for 10 days until May 27th.
Property owners and tenants are encouraged to make arrangements to clear any buildup of trash as appearance tickets or fines may be issued for the trash being on the streets for extended periods of time.
