Violations

Each reported violation will result in an investigation by Code Enforcement. The investigation begins with a site inspection to determine if a violation exists. When it is found that a violation exists a written notice of the violation is left at the location, a notice is mailed to the violator warning that the violation must be corrected within fifteen days, a follow-up investigation is conducted at the conclusion of the fifteen days, and a summons or mandatory court appearance summons is issued if the violation has not been corrected. Repeat offenders or habitual code violations may result in the immediate issuance of a summons or mandatory court appearance summons.
