What is a Notice of Violation?

A Notice of Violation is a document issued by Code Enforcement after inspecting a property and finding a violation of the city ordinance. Notices are intended to educate agents, occupants, and property owners with the types of violations, a corrective action, and a corrective date. Notice of Violations are not citations to appear in court but are an effort focused on working with the community to correct violations. The notice will tell you what violation has been found and what you need to do to correct the problem. It will also have a re-inspection date listed. Contact the Code Enforcement Officer listed on the notice if you have any questions about the violation and how to correct it.
