Nuisance Abated

Wednesday afternoon, the City Crews and the Oelwein Police Department removed numerous nuisance items from a local property. On Tuesday, September 27th, the magistrate court had a hearing in reference to the Oelwein Police Department charging the 723 2nd Avenue SW property owner with two separate charges. Steven Gabriel had been charged with code violations for the structural issues at this property as well as numerous nuisance items on the property.  The court found Mr. Gabriel guilty of both counts. The court allowed for a limited timeline for the structural issues to be remedied and then ordered the City to enter the property and abate the nuisance with the costs of that clean up going to Mr. Gabriel.  The following are some of the before and after photos of this effort.
