What happens if I have a violation?
Once a violation has been observed, it is the intent of Code Enforcement to have the property owner/resident to come into voluntary compliance. To accomplish this, the Code Enforcement Officer will issue a Notice and give timelines of 5 to 30 days to take whatever action is required to correct the problem. The Code Enforcement Officer has the option to give fewer days to correct the violation.

An example of a quicker correction period would be a vehicle under repair left unattended on blocks or jack stands or any life safety situation.

On the scheduled compliance date, a follow-up inspection will be conducted. If the violation is still on the property an Administrative Citations will be issued. Once the Administrative process is exhausted, it is possible that a civil court process may be initiated.
