How are complaints handled?
Once a complaint is filed an investigation of the complaint is made. The officer may make an inspection of the location in question, reviews documents in the Town files, and seek corroboration that a violation does in fact exist. In the event a violation is discovered, notice is sent to the owner of the property or the person legally responsible for addressing the violation. At the discretion of the Code Enforcement Officer, the owner/responsible party may be provided a reasonable period of time to correct the violation if warranted and if the nature of the violation allows for compliance.
