Clean-up Or Be Fined

Amarillo homeowners need to get their properties cleaned up.

Operation: Clean Sweep is underway and people could pay high fines for violating city code. Enforcement agents will be out looking for old appliances in the yard, junk cars, and other solid waste build-up.

"If citizens just take a look in their yard and they find they have indoor items out of doors that's a good clue," said Amarillo Building Official Scott McDonald.

You have one warning to get it cleaned yourself, after that the city will send someone to do it for you and then send you the bill. The project will be in full enforcement Monday.
