Understanding the Code Enforcement Process

The code enforcement process is generally initiated by a concerned resident reporting a possible violation.  Approximately 90 percent of code enforcement cases are resolved by the property owner/responsible party following formal notification of the violations.  When voluntary compliance is not obtained however, the city will pursue civil citations, criminal charges until the violations have been resolved.
