How is a Complaint Handled?

  • When a complaint is received a Code Officer will complete an initial inspection of the property in question within 3 business days. Please keep in mind the is contingent on the Code Officer’s scheduled days off or holiday.

  • At the time of the initial inspection (visit to the property) the Code Officer will determine if the property is in violation.
    • If the property is found “not in violation” the case is closed.
    • If the property is found “to be in violation” the Code Officer will leave an Inspection Notice. The inspection Notice provides the responsible party or owner important information; such as the specific violation, a reminder of the 14-day time line and the Code Officer contact information.

  • Properties found in violation will also receive a “Notice of Violation” in the mail reminding them of the 14-day time and the importance of notifying the assigned Code Officer the violation has been abated or to request and extension; in addition to the specific violation code and language, and the Code Officer contact information.

  • If no extension is requested or granted a citation is issued.
    • Extension requests must be made with the Code Officer Assigned to your case or his/her supervisor.
    • Note: Only a supervisor can grant an extension beyond 28 days.
