Can any of you share a vacant and dilapidated building ordinance? We have a few abandoned houses in town that are starting to become a problem due to lack of maintenance. I'm looking at something that would force repair or removal of the abandoned property.

This is the key prohibitory language in Dubuque's Ordinance:

"...B. Unoccupied and secured by means other than those used in the design of the building;..."

VERY CLEVER !
