Code Enforcement tries to respond to all complaints within 24 hours, however, some situations that may arise that pose a serious risk to health and safety are given priority and may delay in responding to some complaints.
Addressing the Complaint
For all types of code complaints, the first step in addressing the complaint is an inspection by the officer to see if any code violations actually exist, and if so, a written notice will be sent. The process of each notice depends on the violation, some indicting more time than others but most written notices come with a courtesy, first and final notice. If the individual response for the violation appears unwilling to correct or comply, the officer will attempt to make contact before starting a citation process.
