What should I do if I receive a code violation?
Take action to correct the violation and pay the penalty assessed. If you have questions, or if you are working on correcting the violation but need more time due to special circumstances, contact the officer that issued the violation. If you disagree with the violation, you may request a hearing with a Special Master. If the violation is not corrected in the amount of time allotted, the offense may be scheduled to be heard by a Special Master. The Special Master hears your case and may dismiss the case or issue an order directing compliance within a specified time frame. The Special Master may also assess fines and administrative costs if the violation is not promptly removed.
