Analysis of Performance
Code Compliance is above the benchmark. Due to COVID19, the Emergency RV camping order remains in place. All other restrictions have been lifted. Inspectors are performing proactive and re-active patrol in neighborhoods. Code staff is also assisting with the water restrictions by addressing any properties seen watering while out on patrol.
Why Is This Important?
City Organization Impact on Performance
High – The City affects the metric in the following ways: 1) violation notices sent to property owner and tenant explaining the violation and giving a deadline to correct the problem; 2) final notice – this is a posting on the door explaining that the deadline has come, what the violation is, and that they need to correct the violation by the next day in order to avoid abatement or citation; 3) encouragement of residents to call if they need an extension – our violation notices state that they should call us if they have a need for a little more time to correct the violation; 4) Adopt-a-Neighbor program – volunteer program to help elderly or disabled residents with shoveling their sidewalks; and 5) door hangers – for codes that do not require notice be given (i.e. sidewalk snow removal) – we provide a courtesy door hanger on the first offense explaining the code requirement and give them until the following day to correct the violation.
