Code Enforcement strives to assist the property owner to obtain compliance. If permits are not obtained and the matter is corrected without a permit, an administrative citation may be issued under section 7.04.190 of the Municipal Code. A $100 fine shall be due and payable, with second and third citations for continued violations increasing incrementally thereafter. Should you then fail to pay the fines, the City may place your property on lien. This may prevent you from selling the property or obtaining refinancing or title insurance on the property.
