METH ABATEMENT
Buckhannon considers meth abatement ordinance, landlords question need

Reported by: Associated Press

BUCKHANNON, W.Va.


Buckhannon officials are considering an ordinance dealing with the cleanup of properties where methamphetamine is used or manufactured.

The ordinance would require polices to contact property owners and the city's zoning officer when they become aware of a meth lab or precursors of manufactured drugs. It would authorize the zoning officer to shut down a property until the meth is abated.

Jody Light of the Upshur County Landlords Association tells The Exponent Telegram that landlords are concerned that another layer of government will address an issue already addressed by state and federal law.

The proposal is up for a first reading by City Council on May 22.
