Junk Vehicle Ordinance Enforcement

Over the winter months both Turtle Lake and Almena Villages have seen several vehicles that are in violation of their ordinances. This includes expired or non-registered vehicles, inoperable or junk vehicles. Inoperable means the vehicle has not moved in more than 14 days from one spot. Vehicles that don’t meet the ordinance requirements must be stored inside a building or moved out of the village. As in the past we do allow store bought vehicle covers (no tarps). This is only allowed if there are no complaints from residents in the village of the vehicle being stored outside. This year we will start enforcing the ordinance after May 10th, 2024. So please take care of your vehicles so we don’t have to enforce the ordinance. The fine is $200.00 a day for the violation.
