When the Code Enforcement Department receives a complaint a Notice is sent to the property owner where the alleged violations exist. The Notice allows a standard compliance period of 14 days for the property owner, or resident, to correct the conditions. After 14 days have passed, a Code Enforcement Department staff member is assigned to inspect the property to determine whether the corrections have been made.
If the corrections have been made, the complaint is closed and no further action is taken. If the corrections have not been made, an officer is sent to the property and an administrative citation is issued.
