DRAFT Vacant Property Registration ordinance available for pubic review and comment
The City of Sidney is faced with an overwhelming number of vacant properties, which are, first and foremost a life-safety concern for police and fire personnel, as well as surrounding properties. Without occupancy and proper maintenance, vacant properties deteriorate at a much faster rate than occupied buildings. This deterioration has negative effects on surrounding properties and neighborhoods, such as trespassing, arson, loitering and vagrancy. The City is proposing regulations requiring these properties to be registered so their conditions can be inspected and monitored, while ensuring the owners meet the minimum standards of maintenance, and understand the obligations of ownership in the City of Sidney.

If you wish to review the DRAFT ordinance (revision 7/9/18), it is available here . Feel free to E-mail any questions, comments, suggestions, or concerns to Kyle Havenar, Vacant Property Inspector, at or 937-498-8101.

Contract crews working for Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) will soon begin replacing gas mains and service lines in Sidney as part of the company’s pipeline replacement program, which is a multi-year program to replace about 700 miles of bare steel and cast iron pipeline infrastructure throughout Ohio. In Sidney, nearly $2.7 million will go toward retiring nearly four miles of gas main and more than 300 service lines in 2018. Since 2009, approximately 16 miles have been retired within the city. Vectren intends to retire approximately 27 miles in Sidney over the next several years. To read the entire press release click here.
