Inspections are made resulting from complaints received. Once a complaint is received, an exterior property inspection is conducted based upon the complaint. If the complaint is valid, a violation notice is issued to the owner of the property.
If a violation notice is issued, the County gives the property owner time to make corrections. If violations are not corrected, and after consultation with the County Attorney's Office, legal proceedings can be initiated against the property owner.
