Frequently Asked Questions


I received a Notice of Violation, now what?

A Notice of Violation is not a citation, and does not have any fees associated with it. You have until the date noted at the bottom of the notice to correct the violation(s). The phone number of the Officer who issued the Notice of Violation is on the bottom of the notice. If you have questions about the notice call him/her.

Who reported the violation?

We receive complaints from a number of sources including internal referrals, outside agencies, the general public, and proactive inspections and this information is kept confidential.

What if I ignore the Notice of Violation?

Violations listed on the NOV must be corrected by the date indicated on the bottom of the notice. A re-inspection will be conducted after that date, and if the violations remain, a citation will be issued. If the violations have been corrected, the case will be closed.

I received a citation, now what?

Upon receiving a citation, the violations must be corrected, and administrative fines paid, including a re-inspection fee, by the date listed on the citation. If the violations have been corrected at the time of re-inspection, the case will be closed and no further citations will be issued. Violations that have not been corrected by the re-inspection date may result in additional citations and administrative fees and/or legal action.
