Paducah city leaders looking at city’s maintenance code

A city leader says Paducah’s maintenance code may need to be reviewed in hopes of bringing buildings up to code.

City manager Jeff Pederson talked about inspection and code enforcement Tuesday night.

He focused on a historical property located at 304 North 6th Street. The home is in need of repairs.

Pederson said that it wasn’t a lack of enforcement in the property’s code, but the maintenance code may be reviewed with the possibility of increasing fines.

That may push property owners to bring structures up to code.
