After a brief comment period from the public, Derry Borough’s nuisance ordinance was unanimously approved Tuesday night.

The ordinance, which takes effect immediately, will allow the borough to fine property owners up to $1,000 if police are called out numerous times. The frequency and types of calls will be taken into consideration. Some of the incidents outlined include assaults, drug use and distribution, public intoxication and noise complaints.
