News Release: City of Woodburn and Community Partners Abate Nuisance Property (Photo) - 05/21/20

Thursday, May 21, 2020 - Woodburn, OR - On Wednesday, May 20, 2020, members of the Woodburn Police Department (WPD) and City of Woodburn Public Works Operations Department conducted an abatement of a property located at the 1700 block of Laurel Avenue. The residence was in continuous violation of numerous ordinance violations in regards to junked vehicle storage, open storage of junk, rodent attracting conditions, noxious odors and obstructions blocking the right of way. Members of WPD and Code Enforcement Officers had attempted to gather compliance with the occupants of the location numerous times over the course of several months.  After repeated attempts to gain compliance, and issuance of numerous ordinance citations, an abatement process was initiated when no attempt was made to remedy the issues.

The abatement clean-up was assisted by a generous donation of personnel and equipment by waste management company Republic Services to remove, clean and transport the overwhelming amount of trash and other refuse along the curtilage of the residence. Additionally, the Marion County Public Works Environmental Services Division also donated free disposal of all garbage removed from the property.

Lastly, local Woodburn tow company Baker and Baker Towing and Crane coordinated and responded to remove a total of two junked RV’s, one junked pick-up truck and two trailers from the property.

Thanks to the coordination and assistance of all the listed departments, and community partners, the abatement took just one day for completion.
