Chesapeake to deal with junk cars: New ordinance could come up at next village council

CHESAPEAKE — The village of Chesapeake is planning to address the issue of junk cars.

Council member Danny Burd said council members had been discussing the matter at a recent meeting and that they are working on an ordinance.

He said he hopes the matter comes up for a vote at the next meeting of council, which will be at 7 p.m. on June 3.

Chesapeake’s move would follow that of South Point, which passed an ordinance on the issue at their May council meeting. The city of Ironton has also made moves to address the issue of junk cars.
