A proposed RV and boat storage ordinance was presented at Oklahoma‘s Chickasha City Council meeting on Monday night, a report said.

Certain council members were concerned about the wording in the ordinance.

For instance, the law states that all vehicles should be kept in “operable condition.” However, certain council members considered that it might not be apparent how a resident can prove so.

According to Community Development Director Rachel Bernish, the burden of proof falls on the officer in charge of code enforcement. It should be evident to the officer that the car is not operating and is dismantled or in complete disrepair.

Additionally, the procedure of issuing a citation should be preceded by written notice, phone contact, and in-person visit.

Council member Clark Van Dyck said that while the ordinance could have been drafted in good faith, he would prefer to see other provisions less subject to interpretation.

“When we pass something, we don’t have control of who may enforce it in the future or how it may be interpreted in the future,” he said.

The ordinance could be reviewed during a work session scheduled in the near future.
