New Albany council abolishes road collections

Ban on placing indoor furniture outside also approved



The measure could change by final reading, but it establishes a $25 first-time fee, up to a $100 third penalty for placing indoor furniture on porches and decks. 

Councilman Kevin Zurschmiede requested that the ordinance clarify that furniture designed for outdoor exposure that appears to be meant for indoor use not be banned. 

There were also concerns raised about enforcement, as several council members said the city struggles to put action behind its codes. 

“We have so many ordinances that just aren’t getting enforced,” Zurschmiede said. 

Phipps said enforcement needs to be reviewed for all codes, but added that shouldn’t stop the council from approving prudent changes to the books. 

“I just think it’s a nice addition to our current code,” Phipps said of the ban. 

People wouldn’t be fined for placing indoor furniture curbside for trash pickup under the ordinance. The council is slated to meet again on Feb. 21.
