Notice of Violation: If a code enforcement officer believes, based on the officer's personal observation or investigation, that a person has violated the property maintenance code, the code enforcement officer may issue a notice of violation to the property owner, resident, tenant, occupant, persons having control or management of the property or other violator, allowing that person a specified and reasonable number of days to abate the violation. The violator may, upon request, be allowed a reasonable extension of time to abate the violation without imposition of any charges, costs, penalties, and fees, in the sole discretion of the code enforcement officer or code official. If the violator fails to abate the violation within the time prescribed therein, the code enforcement officer may issue a citation for the violation.
