Violations & Concerns

If there is a violation, the property owner is contacted informing them of violation and date for compliance. Another inspection is done on the due date for compliance and if violation is corrected, the case is closed. If the violation is not corrected, then a citation may be issued or if the nuisance is a serious threat to the public safety or health, then it may be abated. See Section 70-6, Abatement Procedures.
