  • Issues of enforcement of the ordinance: Article 5.0 of the Hamburg Township Zoning Ordinance
  • Anti-Litter Ordinance: Ordinance No. 6 of the Hamburg Township General Ordinances.
  • Nuisance Ordinance: Ordinance No. 7 of the Hamburg Township General Ordinances.

  • Burning Ordinance: Ordinance No. 40 of the Hamburg Township General Ordinances
  • Inoperable and/or Unlicensed Vehicles Ordinance:  Ordinance No. 44 of the Hamburg Township General Ordinances
  • Political Signs:  6/19/2012 - Based upon a United States District Court Decision in the case Kent Lawrence Fehribach-vs-the City of Troy, the Planning and Zoning Administration will not be enforcing the time restriction on Political Signs to comply with the decision of the US District Court.  The case found that the 30 day time limit or the number of political signs on a property to be unconstitutional.  It is not the desire of the Township to impinge on the rights of its citizens regarding this right. However, the Township will remove signs that are still in place 7 days after the pertinent election to eliminate clutter.
