Citywide inspections begin in April


Every property in Sidney will be inspected starting in April.

City employees will be looking for basic violations, Ed Sadler, city manager, said.

“We’re inspecting for the obvious,” Sadler said. “If you’ve got the car parked in the front yard, the mattress piled up against the side of the house. You don’t have any house numbers on it. You’ve got trash bags piled up. We’re trying to get things cleaned up.”

He added, “For the violations we’ll take pictures and we’ll send out a letter.”

Citizens will have 30 days to clean up, Sadler said, and if there are still violations citations will follow.

The inspections are part of an effort to put Sidney’s “best foot forward” ahead of its sesquicentennial and solar eclipse events.

“If you’re a new business, would you want to move in next door to some of this stuff?” Sadler asked. “We’re inviting all these people to town, some of which may eventually move here, bring business here, and I would like them to want to come back. I would like them to think if they came to Sidney, we would work hard to maintain the value of the property they establish here.”

A priority for the city is making Sidney more appealing to prospective businesses.
