The City of Canton is taking a proactive approach to cleaning up and correcting various health and nuisance violations throughout the city.

To this end, the City has initiated a new program called Operation Clean Sweep, currently underway. Canton’s Ordinance Officer is working with the Canton Public Works Department and the Canton Police Department over the next few months to focus on cleaning up yards, abandoned vehicles, and houses.

The goal is to make significant progress in cleaning up derelict properties and making Canton more appealing to potential businesses and residents.

This program will focus primarily on the following ordinance violations:
