Violations

Section 8.04.030 of the Corona Municipal Code requires that an abandoned, wrecked, dismantled or inoperative vehicle be stored within a completely enclosed building or behind a solid fence six feet in height. Property owners, occupants, and vehicle owners who do not comply with this provision are subject to a written citation. In addition, Section 8.04.050 of the Corona Municipal Code allows the City to abate, or otherwise remove and dispose of vehicles from private property that violate these provisions that are considered a public nuisance. Vehicles removed under these provisions are destroyed and can't be recovered. Written notice and the opportunity to have a hearing are provided prior to such action.
