Public Notice from the Town of Allendale Building Department

Effective November 1, 2020, proper notice will be sent to all property owners (Residential and Commercial) who are in violation of the Town of Allendale Ordinance.

Code Enforcement

Ordinance Summons to address violations of the Town of Allendale Code of Ordinances, including the clearing of vacant lots as authorized by S.C. Code Ann. § 56-7-80.

Section 91.34 of the Town of Allendale Code of Ordinances governs the "Cleaning of Vacant Lots." The Section requires that any owner of a lot be required to maintain the property in a manner that would not cause a nuisance to the public or neighboring properties. If the lot continues to cause a nuisance, the ordinance also vests the Town with the authority to clear the property after giving written notice and charge the property owner with the cost through their annual tax levy as a property tax.

In accordance with S.C. Code Ann. § 56-7-80, § 10.13 of the Town of Allendale Code of Ordinances vests the authority in the Town to issue Uniform Ordinance Summonses in the event a resident of the Town is not in compliance with a local ordinance. The ordinance summonses must also be audited as part of the Town's annual independent audit as required by S.C. Code Ann.§ 56-7-80.
