If there is a code violation on your property, City Code Compliance Officers will initiate contact with a friendly letter, providing property owners 10 days to correct the violation. The Code Compliance Officers will conduct a check to see if the violation has been rectified, and if things have not been addressed, the property owner will receive a formal Notice of Violation (NOV). The NOV must be addressed within 10 days and the violation must be resolved to the satisfaction of the Code Compliance Officer. If the violation persists after that, a Citation will follow in the range of $200-$500, depending upon the violation. Receipt and/or payment of a Citation does not alleviate responsibility of the property owner to correct the violation, they must still resolve the issue.
