Code Violations Abatement program to fine owners of trash-filled properties in Newburgh
NEWBURGH - The City of Newburgh is cracking down on property owners who don't clean up their garbage.
Officials say owners of trash-filled properties have 21 days to clean up or pay up, under the new Code Violations Abatement program.
Each Wednesday, city crews head out to clean up properties, charging owners between $1,500 and $6,000 for the work.
The new "abatement day" for trash-filled properties is scheduled for April 23.
