How are public nuisance codes enforced?
In most cases, violators are given information that a public nuisance exists on their property and provided with a timeframe (usually a week) to correct the issue. If the issue is not corrected, a process begins that allows the city to correct the issue and assess costs as a tax lien on the property. In certain cases, Municipal Court citations can be issued with a maximum fine of $500 for each day a violation continues.
