How Complaints are Handled
The Code Compliance Division has developed General Operating Procedures for responding to complaints.

What if I Receive a Code Violation Notice?
If you have received a notice from a Code Compliance Officer stating that your home or property is violating a city code, review the code enforcement process to determine your options for correcting those code violations.

Code violations will be issued a notice describing the offense and a reasonable compliance date depending on the violation(s).

Time Extension
If you need more time to make the necessary repairs to your home, fill out a time extension request form and return it to your Code Compliance Officer. Citations may be contested by mail or in court.
