Ordinance Enforcement Question or Complaint Form
Violations of Township Ordinances are enforced through the Civil Infraction Process. This usually requires that an individual be afforded a reasonable opportunity to address the violation before a Civil Infraction Ticket is issued.
When a complaint is received by Code Enforcement, an Officer will determine if it is a violation of a Township Ordinance.
If the issue is a violation of a Township Ordinance, a Code Enforcement Officer will visit the property to verify the problem.
Property Owner Notification
If a violation is found, the property owner will receive a notice of violation letter detailing the necessary corrective actions, and a deadline to make corrections.
The officer re-inspects the property at the end of the given time frame. If violations still exists, further enforcement will be taken. This action can be a phone call, property visit, or additional notices of violation.
When compliance cannot be reached, a citation is issued and a court date is scheduled with the 48th District Court.
Please understand that the process to remedy any given situation generally takes several weeks or longer.
