When a property is found to be in violation at a code enforcement hearing, an Administration Order is issued, stating the case facts and giving the violator time to come into compliance with said ordinances. If the property is not brought into compliance within the time ordered, a the City may commence cleanup and removal of the violation. The cost for the cleanup and removal may be recorded and will constitute a lien against the property in violation.
If the property owner is issued a citation for the code violation the fine will continue to run daily until the property is brought into compliance. Once compliance is achieved, the fine will stop increasing, but the fine total, which is a lien, remains against the property until satisfied.
