WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I REPORT A VIOLATION?
Complaints are addressed in a confidential, friendly and understanding way. Upon receiving a complaint, a Code Enforcement
Officer will evaluate the situation, possibly take pictures, and determine whether a violation exists. If a violation exists, the Officer will notify
the property owner to explain the problem and suggest possible solutions. The property owner is then given reasonable time to take care of the violation.
A follow up inspection is performed to verify that the violation has been corrected. Most property owners comply after the first notification. Those who do not comply
face enforcement action via the issuance of a citation and a hearing in Municipal Court. The Municipal Court Judge will hear testimony from the property owner
and the Code Enforcement Officer and will rule on the case.
