Activities are actions taken by code staff regarding violations reported. They are grouped into four categories: complaints, investigation and resolution. When a complaint is received it is assigned to an inspector who visits the location and determines if there is a violation. If found, the property owner is notified and ask to correct the problem. If the problem persists, the property owner can receive a citation; or the city will abate the violation and charge the owner for the cost of the services. Either way, violations are eventually abated.
