The City of Clarksburg Police Department announces the successful resolution of two more drug house cases with the full cooperation of the property owners. Mr. Steven Ramsey, owner of 109 Kelley Street; Mr. Jim Greaver, and Ms. Amanda Fittro, owners of 383 Broaddus Avenue, have all promptly worked with Clarksburg Police Chief Robert Hilliard to abate the public nuisances as soon as they were notified of the problems. The problem tenants have been vacated from the property owned by Mr. Greaver and Ms. Fittro. Abatement efforts are underway for the property owned by Mr. Ramsey. If all property owners continue to comply with the City’s Crime Free Rental Housing Ordinance Article 1767, “Drug House” Ordinance through April 1, 2019 the cases will be dismissed.
The City’s Crime Free Rental Housing Ordinance had been initiated by confirmed incidents of illegal drug activity at the locations, prompting Chief Hilliard to issue Orders of Abatement to resolve the matters taking place at these residences.
“Mr. Ramsey, Mr. Greaver, and Ms. Fittro were prompt to abate the problems taking place at dwellings under their ownership as soon as they were notified. Within hours of issuing the abatement I was in contact with each of these owners, and they have since done everything possible to abate the problems and prevent them from reoccurring”, stated Chief Hilliard. “The City of Clarksburg will continue to work with property owners to ensure Clarksburg continues to be a safe community for families to work, live, and play”, he continued.
