Code Compliance Offers Lien Reductions

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The City works closely with property owners on residential and business properties to reflect the community’s standards.

Property owners resolve the majority of Code violations voluntarily. The remaining 25% are brought before a Special Magistrate and are given some additional time to correct the problem before daily fines are imposed.

The City may place a lien on property for costs incurred by the hearing and City staff, as well as daily fines that not paid for in a timely manner.

If you have a lien on your property, but all of your violations have been corrected, a lien cost reduction may be applied if you meet certain criteria. If your property is not in full compliance and there is a pending lien on the property, the owner and prospective purchaser may apply for a stipulated agreement, where fines are reduced and the new owner is given a reasonable amount of time to correct the violations.

Applications for these options are $300 and can be found at: Request for Barred Lien Review / Reduction of Fine / Stipulated Agreement or at the Code Compliance Office, located at City Hall.
