When violations are cited, violators are notified and provided a reasonable time to correct the violation. Violations that are not brought into compliance are scheduled for an administrative hearing before the City's Code Enforcement Board Hearing Officer where formal findings are issued and fines imposed for continued non-compliance. Cases that remain in violation beyond the date ordered by the Hearing Officer are scheduled for the Code Enforcement Board, where the Hearing Officer's previous order is confirmed, i.e. fine imposed, or additional time is granted for respondents with unusual hardships.
