The goal of the Code Enforcement program is to encourage voluntary compliance and avoid punitive actions, also known as citations. A helping hand approach is more successful than the punitive approach as citizens may not be aware that their actions are in violation of city ordinances.

Some situations may require immediate injunctive relief or citation in order to achieve the ultimate goal of compliance. This is a judgment call on the Code Enforcement Officer’s part.
