ENFORCEMENT OF STORED PROPERTY ORDINANCE BEGINS

(Fri., Jan. 6, 2012)—Mayor Peter Carlisle today announced that the City has begun enforcing the Stored Property Ordinance, formerly known as Bill 54, which allows the removal of personal property left on sidewalks, in parks, or on other public sites.

Starting from December 30, 2011, in response to complaints, the City notified several property owners in Mililani that basketball hoop structures placed on public sidewalks were in violation of the ordinance. All owners promptly removed the structures. 

Throughout January, the City will provide notice that personal property stored in and around public areas where complaints have been generated must be removed.

The City’s goal is to obtain voluntary compliance with the ordinance. Property that is not removed from public sites by owners within 24 hours of notification will be removed by the City. Property left within parks during closure hours is subject to immediate removal.

Owners may reclaim removed property within 30 days.
