When a complaint is received, it will be logged and assigned to a Code Enforcement Officer.
The assigned Officer investigates each complaint to determine if a violation exists. If evidence exists that a violation may have occurred, the Code Enforcement Officer may send a notice to the responsible party (usually the property owner).
Cases may remain open for some time, based on the nature of the violation.
If necessary, the Code Enforcement Officer may conduct a site visit to further investigate the violation.
If the violation is confirmed, a Notice of Violation and/or an Administrative Citation will be issued.
If the violation notice is not properly abated and the violation continues, further enforcement action will be taken.
Non-compliant cases will be referred to the City Attorney's Office for litigation.
