Pittston Officials Sweep Neighborhood For Violations

July 10, 2018

PITTSTON — City officials converged on the Oregon Heights on Tuesday morning to ensure residents are in compliance with the law.

“This is the new normal,” city officials announced on their Facebook page. “This City will not tolerate any activity, or anti social behavior, that degrades the quality of life in our neighborhoods.”

According to the post, personnel from nearly all city departments are in the neighborhood looking for code, criminal and “quality of life” violations. Officials also said two vacant structures will be demolished.

The post indicated the check would be the first of many unannounced neighborhood sweeps they plan to conduct in the city.
