I made a complaint. What is taking so long for compliance?
The Code Enforcement Division is staffed by 1 part time officer who is budgeted for 8 hours per week. At any given time, the officer can be working on 15 - 20 cases. Each case can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to manage each week. All complaints received are ordered by the severity of the violation and responded to as soon as possible. Once inspections are conducted and a violation notice is provided to the property owner, the timeframe for compliance can vary from 7 days to 2 weeks. As long as the property owner is responsive and compliant, extensions of time may be provided, lengthening the timeframe for compliance. If you have made a complaint and would like an update on the status, please contact our office and staff will gladly provide you with that information.
