What happens if a violation is not corrected?

Each violation has a set of enforcement procedures and a time limit for compliance. If the violation is not corrected in the time allowed, the City has two enforcement options:

  • Abatement: In a typical case, the City's Property Maintenance Team will hire a private contractor to either demolish or board and secure a structure, or to clean a property of junk and debris.
  • Judicial Remedies: Failure to correct violations can result in fines of as much as $440 and/or jail time.
