To report a violation

To report a possible code violation or concern, contact a Code Enforcement Officer (above), or use the online service request form and provide the following information:

  • Address of the possible violation
  • A description of the possible violation
  • If you want to be contacted later regarding the status or resolution of your concern, please provide your name and phone number or email.

If you receive a violation notice

In most cases the officer will leave a courtesy notice (door hanger) requesting that the violation be corrected, with the issuing officer’s contact information. If the problem is not corrected, a formal violation notice will be sent to the property owner with the issuing officer’s contact information and instructions for abatement.

What are the penalties for code violations?

If the property owner does not respond to a zoning violation notice, the owner may be fined up to $2,000 per day of violation. If the owner does not address a nuisance violation, the City may arrange to have the problem corrected at the owner’s expense, plus an additional administrative fee. If necessary, fines and abatement expenses will be secured with a privileged lien on the property.
