Below is the first junk vehicle notification letter that a number of residents have received:

Resident Name,

 This letter is to inform you that Newton Township is requesting you remove junk vehicles from your property pursuant to Ohio Revised Code 505.871.  An ongoing concern for residents is junk/disabled, wrecked vehicles within the Township.  We are trying to police and clean up the problem ourselves without other agencies or zoning laws that could be voted in place by residents of the Township.  Should zoning laws be put in place there would be no going back.  Zoning laws can be strict enough that you might not be able to have any disabled vehicles without being housed in a building or enclosure.

People that own these vehicles may think that this is none of anybody’s business, but it is when you consider the possible impacts on children with environmental or health problems, and when it is bad enough it can drop and devalue neighbors and community property values.  As Trustees we understand that cars can be purchased for parts and to repair other vehicles, or are in some cases future collectible, and can be a “work in progress.” 

 You can have two (2) junk/disabled cars with the potential of being fixed or repaired on each property.  Vehicles beyond repair will not fall under this category and will be subject to removal.  Vehicles that fit the “junk vehicle” definition in Ohio Revised Code 505.173 are 1) more than 3 model years older, 2) apparently inoperable; and 3) extensively damaged, including, but not limited to: missing wheels, tires, engine, or transmission.  There is no consideration given for the value of the vehicle.

 We hope you choose to remove the vehicles while you can still receive cash money for each one.  Collectibles or vintage cars need to be covered or housed in a building.  Any junk vehicles you don’t want to remove will require a presentable 8-foot-high solid fence constructed of wood, vinyl, or metal siding, that totally surround and enclose the area in which the area the cars are being parked in with a working gate into this area.  This fence should be well constructed, straight, and true to withstand weather and time.  Used tin or used siding, misshaped or partial wood sections, or pallets are not acceptable for fence construction.

 If you want or need any assistance in removal of the vehicles you can call a Trustee, or one of the following numbers:

1)      Miller Wrecking – (740) 452-1570

2)      Perry County Scrap Yard – (740) 891-7184

3)      Cash for Junk Cars – (888) 871-4488

4)      Junk Car Buyer – (844) 913-1179

5)      Wheelzy – (855) 294-0940

6)      Hopewell Auto Wrecking – (740)452-7313

Hopefully you are willing to help us resolve this problem.

                                                                                                                 Thank you for your attention,

                                                                                                                                                Newton Township Trustees
