    In any future posts, please make an effort to use something that resembles proper capitalization and punctuation. Doing so will make it easier for others to read and understand.

    As for your question, you're free to file a complaint about this guy trespassing, but that's not relevant to the citation you've apparently been given.

    No.

    Clean up your junk.

    Nobody is prosecuting this guy for walking across your property.

    Put up a fence if you don't want people walking across your property.

    You may contest the city order in court, if you have a basis for claiming you aren't in violation of the ordinance. The fact that the guy who made the initial complaint may have trespassed on your property to see the junk you have on your property is not a good defense, however.
