CODE-SERVICE: Vegetation Code Violation

A litter violation may be opened as a result of a citizen complaint or an inspector observing a violation while patrolling his or her area.

What is Vegetation Violation?

Common Types of Vegetation Violations:

  • fallen tree limbs 
  • stumps
  • cut brush, large piles of cut brush
  • overgrowth blocking the public right of way

Where is the Vegetation Violation provided?

When an inspector observes a vegetation violation, pictures are taken, a citation is issued, and a letter is sent to the property owner. The property owner has 10 days from the date the citation was mailed to resolve the violation.

After the 10 days have passed, an inspector will reinspect the property to verify the vegetation has been removed. If the violation was cleaned by owner, the case is closed. If the violation is still present, the Neighborhood Enforcement Action Team (NEAT) will be assigned to abate the violation. NEAT will take a picture before they abate the violation and after they have abated the violation. After the violation has been abated by NEAT, Code Enforcement will bill the property owner of record for the abatement.
