What happens when a code violation occurs?

If a violation has occurred, the city's Planning and Building Services will try to resolve it first through education, voluntary compliance, and/or negotiation. If this proves ineffective, the city may begin formal enforcement proceedings by issuing a notice of violation. If the noncompliance continues, misdemeanor violations, class one civil infractions, property liens, fines, or other appropriate courses of action may be taken to remedy the situation.
