Nuisance ordinance will cut down on 'nonsense' calls says Berlin chief

'The council finds that certain individuals within the city receive and require more than the general acceptable level of police services. Such individuals place an undue and inappropriate burden on the City of Berlin taxpayers, and constitute a public nuisance. The council therefore adopts this bylaw to authorize the chief of police to charge the individuals the costs associated with the nuisance activities that occur and to provide for forfeitures and/or fines for the individuals who create such nuisance activities or situations, including those that require an emergency response caused by an individual's reckless or intentional behavior, so that such activities will be abated in the city.'
