Be A Good Neighbor
The City of Wheeling's Building and Planning Department receives hundreds of complaints throughout the year regarding residential, commercial and industrial properties. These complaints can often be easily resolved without the need for citations and court appearances.
The most frequent violations involve high grass and weeds, the parking of motor vehicles on the grass, the storage of junk and debris in an exposed manner and the lack of basic maintenance on dwellings, garages, sheds and fences. Improper storage of inoperable vehicles can be a serious problem for a community.
