FERNLEY, Nev. (Mynews4.com & KRNV) -- Fernley residents are concerned about a possible new city ordinance.
The "Nuisance Ordinance" would let code enforcement officials write citations for violations, and some viewers were concerned that the ordinance would give those city employees the power to come onto their property without permission.
City Manager Chris Good says that is not the case. "The ordinance acknowledges that the property owner has a right to say 'No, you can't enter my property'. If that happens, the city official could ask a judge to issue a warrant like a peace officer would, but judges don't do that easily or quickly."
The Nuisance Ordinance will be up for discussion at a working group on Monday. If you would like to weigh-in, it will take place at Fernley City Hall at 5 p.m.
