Duties and Responsibilities
The board shall hear complaints which allege that any premises constitute a public nuisance. Upon receipt of such allegation, the board shall give notice and an opportunity for a hearing to determine whether a public nuisance exists. If the Board determines a nuisance exists, it will render a decision to immediately cease the activity and may impose a monetary fine. The 1st violation is $1000, and the 2nd violation is $1000. The Police Department may issue a criminal violation in lieu of a civil citation.
The Nuisance Abatement Board (NAB) was created for residents that experience within a 1-year period on the same property two or more occurrences of disorderly acts that disturb the public peace such as:
- Gatherings for which admission/entry fees, cover charges, ticket sales, food or beverage sales or adult entertainment charges (prostitution, human trafficking) result in personal profit to the homeowner or organizer; or
- Gatherings for the purpose of illegally administering a controlled substance, illegal criminal gang activity or activities which endanger the health, life, or safety — or obstruct the quiet enjoyment and reasonable use — of property or persons in a particular area, and are reported to local, state or County agencies with the authority to cite for non-compliance activity per the County Code.
