How Compliance is Achieved

The responsible party is given an appropriate amount of time to voluntarily correct the violation and comply with the provisions of the applicable codes and ordinances. Follow-up re-inspections are routinely conducted to ensure that progress toward full compliance is being achieved. Most individuals correct violations after receiving verbal or written notification. Especially difficult issues may require several phone calls, site visits, and/or letters 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: mediation, citation, abatement, lien, and/or judicial proceedings.
