The City of Lawrenceville’s Code Enforcement effort is assigned to the Planning and Development Department. Code Enforcement investigates and resolves violations of the City Code, Zoning Ordinance and Property Maintenance Ordinance. Our focus is to gain compliance with the cooperation of agents, occupants or property owners.
A complaint is received and a case is opened. Code Enforcement Officers then conduct an investigation and take enforcement steps to notify the property owner if a violation is found. If corrections are not made by the deadline, a citation is issued and the cases are presented in court. The process ends when the violation has been corrected and the property is in compliance.
A violation is an instance where a residential and/or commercial property does not meet the minimum standards as set out in the City’s ordinances. Check out the graphic for tips to avoid common violations and visit lville.city/violation-counts to view the current violation counts and statistics.
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.
Citations are issued as a final means to correct the violation. If a violation has not been corrected after a follow up inspection, a citation may be issued requiring a court appearance.
The Notice of Violation will contain a deadline of no less than one and not more than 20 days for compliance. For more information, please contact the Code Enforcement Officer who issued the notice.
