Thirty five notices have sent out letting people know about their properties and chronic nuisance calls according to Middletown City Manager Douglas Adkins.
Atkins said the nuisance law was passed last year but enforcement of the law started in July. It’s been reported that the Parkway Inn had over 100 service calls in 2015. Calls included robbery, drugs and a 5 year-old had trouble breathing and later died at Children’s Hospital.
“The first is like any type of response,” said Middletown Mayor Larry Mulligan. “The second in the same location triggers a letter about the cost that could be assessed to the property owner,” he continued. A third violation could cost in the thousands said Mulligan depending on who all responds to the call for service.
“Third strike and you’re out,” said a Middletown woman who asked us not to identify her. She lives on Kay Drive where one home has had 12 calls for service since August according to published reports.
