Frequently Asked
Can I connect to city water and sewer? - First contact the Service Department at 937-525-5800 to determine if water and sewer are available in your area. You may be required to pay a connection fee and obtain a permit to work in right of way. Work done on private property may require a plumbing permit from the Clark County Combined Health District.
How can the City address vacant properties in my neighborhood? - If there are property maintenance violations at a vacant property, the City will go through the regular notification process whereby the legal owner is provided notice of the violation and given a date where compliance must be reached.
Are there restrictions on the storage of recreational vehicles on residential property? - Yes. In residential districts, special vehicles-vehicles more than seven and one-half (7 1/2) feet in height or more than twenty (20) feet in length which is or may be transported or drawn upon a highway, street or body of water-may be stored on a well maintained gravel pad in the rear yard that is a minimum of five (5) feet from side and rear yard property lines. Such vehicles include but are not limited to a truck, trailer, tractor, wagon, or watercraft exceeding these dimensions. Such vehicles do not include temporary construction trailers when associated with an active construction project on the premises. A space used for storage of a special vehicle is to be at least equal in size to the outer perimeter of the special vehicle.
Where can I legally park my vehicles on my property? - Vehicles must be parked on asphalt, concrete, brick/block (permeable) pavers, grass pavers/porous pavement or pervious concrete.
Can a City code enforcement officer enter onto my property with or without my permission? - An officer/inspector may conduct an inspection from a location where they are legally entitled to be such as the public sidewalk, streets and alleys. An officer/inspector may enter onto private property to deliver notices or orders in connection to the enforcement of City ordinances. Officers/Inspectors may not enter the interior of a property without the owner’s consent.
