Property Maintenance/Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement Process

Inspections are conducted as part of an overall and ongoing departmental "cleanup" strategy in communities or in response to complaints.  Should violations be identified during an inspection, the Code Official (inspector) issues a Notice of Violation (NOV) and/or a Civil Citation to the owner or responsible person for the property.  The NOV or citation references the violation(s) of the County Code and the length of time allotted to address the violation(s).  A follow-up inspection is conducted after the allotted time to ensure compliance.  If the violation(s) has not been addressed at the time of re-inspection of the property, appropriate action will be taken.
