County Revises Law On Abandoned And Inoperable Vehicles


The Board of County Commissioners voted 4-0 to approve renaming and amending local regulations pertaining to abandoned and inoperable vehicles. BOCC Chairman Jeff Holcomb was absent from the meeting.

The new law will treat abandoned and inoperable vehicles much like the way they are currently handled by the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) when left on public roadways; the vessel will be removed 10 days after a notice “sticker” is affixed to the vessel or vehicle.  Deputy County Attorney Jon Jouben explained that the state and local ordinance has also amended the language to include aircraft.
