Perry Airport

Perry Municipal Airport is a city-owned, public-use general aviation airport located 5 nautical miles North of Perry, OK. It was originally established as Noble Army Airfield and began operations on February 11, 1942. Assigned to the US Army Air Force Gulf Coast Training Center, Noble Army Airfield offered basic pilot training and was operated by the Enid Flying School as an auxiliary to Enid Army Airfield, now Vance Air Force Base.

While conducting flight training operations, Noble Army Airfield operated Fairchild PT-19s as the primary training aircraft, although other aircraft, including the venerable Boeing PT-17 Stearman, were also assigned to the base. Following the drawdown of USAAF operations at the end of World War II, Noble Army Airfield was deactivated, declared surplus, and turned over to the Army Corps of Engineers. The field was eventually discharged to the War Assets Administration and was deeded to the City of Perry as a commercial airport.

Perry Municipal Airport began official operations in August of 1943 and the City of Perry continues to operate Perry Municipal Airport as a commercial airport. Facilities include, among others: hanger and tie-down space, terminal and lounge space, full-service fuel service (100LL and Jet A) and minor airframe and power plant service. The airport houses a number of aircraft on-site ranging from ultralight aircraft to the corporate jet owned by the Charles Machine Works, Inc. Perry Municipal Airport boasts one of the lowest overall costs in the area, making it a popular place to house and operate aircraft.

Despite the original airfield having operated three runways, the current airport operates a single runway (17/35), though the remnants of the other two are still visible from the air. The runway, measuring 5110ft long by 75ft wide, was resurfaced in 2012 under a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration and the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission. As a result of the runway resurfacing, Perry Municipal Airport is now able to service larger and heavier aircraft.

Code Enforcement:
From high grass and dilapidated houses to junk cars and junky yards, if it pertains to the proper maintenance of your property, there's probably an ordinance for it. These ordinances, or codes, are designed to keep our residents safe and keep our city looking great, and Code Enforcement is department responsible for the application of these codes. If you want to keep yourself from running afoul of these codes, here is your opportunity to learn how.

WHAT IS CONSIDERED A VIOLATION?

As a general rule, violations must have an impact on the adjacent neighborhood or the community as a whole. In all cases, the property owners of record are ultimately responsible for preventing these nuisances. While not an exhaustive list, these are the most common violations.

How Do I Make a 
Complaint?
Complaints can be made by telephone at any time by calling (580) 336-3416. If the telephone is not answered by an employee, or if it is after regular business hours, complaints can be made by following the telephone voicemail prompt. Callers may remain anonymous. Complaints may also be made in person at City Hall, 622 Cedar Street.

Please include a specific address to the violation property when making a complaint.

Abandoned/Inoperative Vehicles
Under city code, no person may, in open view, deposit, store, keep or permit to be kept upon any private or public property (including city streets) any unserviceable, inoperable, unlicensed, junked or abandoned vehicle for a period exceeding 30 days for private property and 24 hours for public property. Inoperative or unlicensed vehicles may only be kept in a completely enclosed building, such as a garage, or be properly screened from view.

This is a violation under Chapter 8-401 of the Code of Ordinances, and IPMC Section 302.8.
Unsecured or Dilapidated Structures
Under city code, any vacated buildings shall have all exterior doors firmly locked, and all windows boarded or secured to prevent entry. Structures that, by their state of damage, decay or prolonged vacancy, present a hazard to occupants or the public’s health, safety or welfare may be considered dilapidated and subject to demolition and removal. Also, structures that must be boarded and secured more than three times in a year may be deemed dilapidated.

This is a violation under Chapter 8-502 of the Code of Ordinances.
The Abatement 
Process
Most code violations are resolved quickly. Some situations, however, will require abatement by the city or its assigned private contractor. Abatement, in this case, refers to the reduction or removal of a public nuisance violation. In such cases, the property owner of record is notified of the public nuisance violation. If corrections are not made within 10 days from the date of the notice, the city may assign a contractor to abate public nuisance conditions on the property. Cases involving inoperative vehicles may require the vehicle to be removed by towing. During that period, the owner may request, in writing, an administrative hearing before the City Manager, or his or her designee, to show cause why the violation should not be considered a public nuisance and abated.

After abatement work is completed, a bill is prepared for all related costs including an administrative fee. If the property owner fails to pay the bill within timeframe established by city ordinance and state law, the costs will be assessed as a lien co-equal with the property’s taxes. The property owner may appeal, in writing, the cost amount to the City Clerk within 10 days of the billing.

The city may pursue other civil remedies as necessary to assure correction. Additionally, abatements and criminal cases may be pursued simultaneously if circumstances warrant.
High Weeds 
and/or Trash
Under city code, lawns must be kept neat and tidy and free weeds and trash. 
Weeds include, but are not limited to:
  • poison ivy
  • poison oak
  • poison sumac
  • vegetation that exceeds 12 inches in (height except healthy trees, shrubs or produce grown for human consumption) harbors rodents or vermin, conceals or invites deposits of trash, gives off unpleasant odors, constitutes a fire or traffic hazard, is dead or diseased
Trash includes, but is not limited to:
  • refuse
  • litter
  • ashes
  • leaves
  • debris
  • paper
  • combustible materials
  • rubbish
  • offal
  • waste
  • other matter which is uncared for, discarded, or abandoned.
Both of these are a violation under Chapter 8-101 of the Code of Ordinances, and International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC) Section 302.4.
What Happens After the Complaint?
The Code Enforcement department investigates all complaints within their jurisdiction. If a violation is determined to exist, a variety of measures may be taken depending upon the type and severity of the violation. If the violation is minor and corrective actions can be completed easily, the property owner may only receive a verbal notification. A “Courtesy Notice – Code Violation” door hanger may also be left. This is not a citation or legal notice, but rather an informal notice explaining the problem and seeking correction, usually within a week’s time.




The Key is Communication!
When a public nuisance or other code violation exists, Code Enforcement is willing to work with responsible parties to achieve correction, but communication is essential! Remember, code compliance is a vital part of a safe, healthy living environment and a prosperous community!
Repeat Violations
If a property receives a Public Nuisance Abatement Notice, the city may summarily abate any similar violation occurring within a six-month period without further notice to the property owner. This can occur even if the property owner corrects the initial violation.
Where do I get the Code?
The Code of Ordinances for the City of Perry are available online here. Hard copies are available for review in the City Clerk’s office.
A more serious or continuing violation may result in the issuance of a municipal court citation with a maximum fine of $500. Each day the violation continues may constitute a separate offense.
