The city of McMechen is looking to change its junked and abandoned vehicle ordinance.

That would mean that vehicles that are on private property with no license, expired inspection, no tires would have to be brought up to state code.

If not, the police department will be tagging the cars and taking measures to get rid of them.

Chief Don Dewitt says it’s not about tickets but helping to clean up McMechen. Dewitt expects this to be approved after the second reading of the ordinance at the next city council meeting March 17.
