Achieving Compliance

Responsible parties are given an appropriate amount of time to voluntarily correct the violation and comply with the provisions of the applicable codes, ordinances or notices. Follow-up inspections are routinely conducted to ensure that progress towards full compliance is being achieved. Ideal cases only require minimal notification to achieve compliance. However, especially difficult issues may require several phone calls, site visits, and notices before violations are corrected. If voluntary compliance is not achieved within a reasonable amount of time, there are a number of additional actions that can be taken by the City to achieve compliance including: administrative fines, warranted abatement, lien, and/or referral to legal.
