Albany - -  Code enforcers say they'll make a new push to clean up junk cars.

Code Enforcement Director Mike Tilson told city commissioners Tuesday his officers place red tags on abandoned cars they see throughout the city. If the owner doesn't fix the car or get rid of it, the city will seek court permission to tow it to the city's impound lot and sell it.

That process can take longer than a month. Commissioner Jon Howard says that's too long.

Howard says he sees numerous junk cars that have sat vacant for years. Tilson says he will work with commissioners to remove these eyesores.
