Corinth sends notices on junk cars

By The Associated Press

CORINTH — The city of Corinth has mailed out notices to violators of the junk car ordinance.

The Daily Corinthian reports the notices are part of an ongoing cleanup of overgrown and dilapidated properties and junk cars.

A city ordinance defines a junk vehicle is one that does not have a current Mississippi inspection sticker and license plate or is in inoperable condition. It includes a trailer, camper or boat without a current registration plate.

In residential zones, the ordinance allows one junk vehicle to be stored behind opaque fencing or landscaping that completely blocks the view of the vehicle from all surrounding property.

The offense is a misdemeanor with a fine ranging from $10 to $100 per offense, and each day can be counted as a separate offense.
