Enforcement
Upon receiving a complaint, Code Enforcement will perform an inspection.Code Enforcement will send a letter to the property owner listing violations found and give them 12 days to correct the violations.If the violation still exists when the property is again inspected, a ticket will be issued.If the violation is still not corrected, additional tickets may be issued until it is fixed.

The cost of a ticket is $50 for each violation, although failure to correct the violation could cause the penalty to increase. Tickets may be paid online or by mail.

Other violations result in the issuance of a violation notice and a time frame for correction of the violation(s).Failure to correct within the time allotted may lead to charges being filed in court.
