How are Codes Enforced

City staff responds to code violation complaints according to the impact of the violation on the community. Situations that appear to pose a serious risk to health and safety are given top priority; others are pursued in the order in which they are received.

For all types of code complaints, the first step in the follow-up procedure is an inspection by a City staff member to verify if a code violation exists. In many cases, the responsible party for the code violation is given the opportunity to voluntarily correct the situation and comply with current codes without a penalty. If the correction is not made, then the responsible party may be subject to fines and civil injunctions or other penalties.

The City relies on residents to help identify possible code violations, particularly in these areas:

  • Ice or hazards on public sidewalks
  • Encroachments in the public right of way (basketball goals, skateboard ramps)
  • Illegal signs, such as advertising flyers and portable ground signs
  • Graffiti on public or private property
  • Long grass and weed violations
  • Illegal dumping of garbage and debris
  • Abandoned and/or inoperable vehicles
  • Illegal dumping of oils and other hazardous materials into storm drains
  • Overgrown foliage blocking stop signs, impeding sight of driveways or making corners dangerous
  • Street parking and parking on lawns
  • Overflowing garbage or other garbage problems
  • Zoning and occupancy issues
  • Property maintenance issues

(Code enforcement penalties range from $100-$10,000 depending on the citation)
