Re: Gas Grill Regulations
Dear Resident,
This letter in to inform you of the regulation pertaining to gas/electric grills. N.F.P.A 1 2012 Edition reads as follows:

10.11.6.1 For other than one and two family dwellings, no hibachi, grill or other similar devices used for cooking, heating, or any other purpose shall be used or kindled on any balcony, under any overhanging portion, or within 10 feet(3 m) of any structure.

We have been in contact with the State Fire Marshall’s office on October 28, 2014 and they are also in agreement with this N.F.P.A. regulation.

We have been asked that the fire department enforce this regulation as written. Within your complex, we ask that grills be removed from any balcony or patio to comply with the NFPA 1 Section 10.11.7.

Thank you,
Central Campbell County Fire

The City of Highland Heights has an ordinance regulating the keeping or maintaining of dogs and cats in the City. It also has an ordinance prohibiting persons with animals from appearing in public places or upon the property of another, absent that person's consent, without some means of removal of excrement and require persons to in fact remove that animal's excrement.

You may submit your Resolution at a Council meeting. Resolutions are normally brought before the legislative body.  There is motion to accept or reject the Resolution. For your information, a Resolution has no binding effect on the city's citizens or on the legislative body.  However, a written Resolution does provide a more formal record of an expression of the legislative body's opinion which is often useful if it is to be conveyed to outside parties.  Council meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month at the Civic Center, 176 Johns Hill Road at 7:30 p.m.

This answer is from our Zoning Administrator. The City of Highland Heights cannot regulate the number of family members living in a house, however we do restrict the number of people that are not related by blood or marriage, and you are not permitted to have more than 3 people in a single family dwelling unit (house, apartment/condo) if they are not related. The City is actively enforcing this ordinance when we become aware of violations.

Call the City Clerk to have your name and address placed on the agenda.  At the appropriate time the Mayor will recognize you to speak. It is helpful to let the City Clerk know what you want to address.  Groups or delegations (4 or 5) who wish to be heard are asked to appoint a single person. Comments should be kept brief.

The questions “who maintains easement property?” is a bit too generic to have a simple answer.

The streets are located in “Public Rights of Way”. There is no clear title to that property, and it is available for adjoining property owners to gain access to their property. Utility companies can locate water/sewer/gas/telephone/and similar utilities. The City is responsible for the maintenance of the street paving if it is a dedicated/accepted street – if it is not pavement that has been accepted for maintenance then it is privately maintained. The Sanitation District is responsible for most storm sewer improvements. There are a considerable number of undeveloped rights of way (paper streets) in the City, and there is no entity responsible for the maintenance of undeveloped street rights of way. Yard areas in the right of way along dedicated streets are the responsibility of adjoining property owner to maintain. Dead trees in the ROW may be cut by the utility companies if they provide a danger to the overhead wires – the City may cut a tree if it falls on the roadway – however they will only cut it enough to restore traffic then the adjoining property owner is responsible for the remainder of the cleanup.

Dedicated Easements may have maintenance responsibility issues detailed in the easement document. Gas companies often keep their easement clear of trees and brush, and the sanitary sewer easements are often cut as well.
