Processing a Zoning Violation
Complaints having an immediate health or safety hazard will be investigated within a few days in the order they are received. If the complaint is valid, we are then required to issue a proper warning notice to the owner(s) to give them an opportunity to correct the situation. If they do not, the County will initiate action to obtain compliance. This legal process may take between thirty (30) and 120 days depending on the nature of the violation. With voluntary action from a cooperative owner, this time may be reduced to as few as fifteen (15) days.
