A new ordinance in Warrick County aims to make the county a clean, attractive place to live.
The public nuisance ordinance has been in effect for about a week.
The goal is to protect health, safety, and property values in the county.
It specifically addresses abandoned vehicles, weeds, garbage, and junk.
Officials said they've received some complaints, but have already seen improvements.
Complaints must be made on a violation report form and the complainant's name must be disclosed.
The commissioner assigned to the district will do an inspection.
The county administrator makes a notification if the property is in violation.
