Public Nuisance & State Nuisance Abatement

Public Nuisance Ordinance

This ordinance deals with the odor, decay, refuse rubble, dead or hazardous trees, overgrown vegetation, fumes, or any other threat or inconvenience to the public. It shall be unlawful for any owner or occupant within Augusta Richmond County to cause or permit any nuisance to be created or remain on such premises

Notice: Violations under this code shall be rectified within 10 days after notice is received.



State Nuisance Abatement


This is a state code that is currently being used on open, vacant, and dilapidated structures instead of using the 60-day unsafe building abatement code. This system reduces the time and allows for a legal process to eliminate these structures in a timelier fashion.
