§ 44-2. Abandoning Vehicles Prohibited; Removal.  
It shall be unlawful for any person to abandon a motor vehicle on public grounds and 
private property and County-owned property.  
Any abandoned or junked vehicle as defined by this Chapter may be removed for 
safekeeping under the direction of a certified sanitarian of the Henderson County Health 
Department to a storage garage or area in accordance with this Chapter, provided that no  
such vehicle shall be removed from privately owned premises without the written request 
of the owner, lessee or occupant of the premises unless the same has been declared by the 
Board of Commissioners or Health Director of Henderson County to be a health or safety 
hazard. All removal shall be accomplished through use of an independent third party 
contractor in the business of towing and storage of motor vehicles. The independent third 
party contractor shall be responsible for collecting all towing fees.
