For the first time in five years, a Brookfield Township code enforcement officer has filed a charge in Trumbull County Eastern District Court alleging a violation of the property maintenance code.
Officer Peter Ross filed a charge Oct. 16 against Donald A. Hacker of 7583 Stewart Sharon Road, alleging Hacker has inoperable and unlicensed vehicles, tires and other debris on the property.
The charge is a minor misdemeanor punishable by up to a $150 fine.
