What happens after a possible code violation is reported?
  1. A code enforcement inspector will inspect the property and determine if a violation exists.
  2. If a violation exists, the property owner may be contacted but is most likely sent a notice of violation via USPS Certified Mail. The notice of violation contains the specific code section and the nature of the violation, and a reasonable time period to correct the violation.
  3. If the violation is not corrected, the violation may be referred to the Special Magistrate for a hearing.
  4. The Special Magistrate will hear testimony from the City and the property owner, and determine if, in fact, a violation exists.
  5. If the Special Magistrate finds the property owner is in violation of City Ordinances, an order may be issued and/or a fine imposed upon the property owner of record.
