Debate continues in Kane over junk vehicle definition

Staff Writer

Kane ordinances claim junk vehicles to be those without a registration plate, state registration, a valid inspection sticker or valid insurance.
But the operators of a Kane business known as “Pure Street Illusion” claim their vehicles shouldn’t be labeled as junk because the vehicles are actively being fixed for resale or trades.
A debate over the borough’s junk vehicle and nuisance laws surfaced Thursday at a meeting of the Kane Borough Council’s Ordinance Committee.
Todd Wareham and Doug Blint, partners in “Pure Street Illusion,” claim their operation isn’t a nuisance and shouldn’t be considered to be in violation of the borough junk vehicle ordinance.
