A concern from a resident may come directly to Code Enforcement, or a resident may contact Town Hall, and the concern will be forwarded to Environmental Services. A citizen’s concern is entered into the Town’s database, and a Request for Service is generated and assigned to the Code Officer assigned to the area in question.
The initial inspection is typically conducted within 48 hours, and if a code violation is confirmed, notification is either given in person or by mail. Different violations are given different time periods to comply. For instance, a high grass or unsightly matter violation must be corrected within 7 days, while a junked vehicle violation must be corrected within 10 days. Violations that are a danger to the health and safety of the community are given less time to comply.
