  • A community enhancement officer will notify the appropriate party of the violation and provide a specific time frame to comply with City regulations
  • The compliance time frame is determined by City ordinance
  • The compliance time frame may be extended upon request
  • Additional action such as abatement or a "notice to appear" in Municipal Court may be taken if compliance is not achieved within the designated time frame
