BAKER, La, — Mayor Darnell Waites announces his initiative for a #BetterBaker, #KeepBakerBeautiful. This effort is aimed to improve property values in the City of Baker with the assistance of Baker Code Enforcement officers, who will be proactively observing properties to aid the Mayor's initiative efforts. We anticipate positive results for our community with this initiative which is strategically focused on three initial areas:
Removing and/or eliminating salvaged and inoperable vehicles that are currently in view of the public: this includes all salvaged or inoperable vehicles which are parked on lawns, under carports, in driveways or on the street. (Please note that any vehicle, abandoned or inoperative which does not have a license plate or current license plate, inspection sticker, has flat tires, or is otherwise inoperable may be deemed a public nuisance that is unlawfully stored in violation of Baker City Ordinances.)
Removing and/or trimming excessive grass, weeds trees or other vegetation: grass must be less than 12 inches high on any property or premises
Removing and eliminating litter, garbage, refuse and rubbish: such as commercial & noncommercial handbills, temporary signs, any printed, written or privately or commercially produced signs etc. that have been deemed to be inappropriately placed in violation of Baker City Ordinances.
Baker Code Enforcement officers, upon observation of any violation, shall issue a notice which will be provided to property owners informing them of the need to remove or abate the nuisance. Failure to remove or abate the nuisance may result in fees or costs as specified in Baker City Ordinances.
Thank you to all of the people who help every day to Keep Baker Beautiful, creating a #BetterBaker for everyone!
