 Questions regarding Code Enforcement

Why do we have Code Enforcement?
Answer: The role of Code Enforcement is to help maintain and enhance the appearance of residential and business properties throughout the City of Englewood.  
How does Code Enforcement work?
Answer:  There are four Code Enforcement Officers who routinely patrol the City to ensure that properties are in compliance with Municipal codes. If a violation is found, Code Enforcement will try to contact the resident and make them aware of the problem. The resident will be given a specific amount of time (usually 7 days) to correct the violation. If the problem is not resolved within the allotted time frame, the resident may be issued a Summons and Complaint to Municipal Court.
I recently received a Notice of Violation for a Code violation. Is this the same thing as getting a ticket?
Answer: No, a Notice of Violation is a written warning to the owner/resident that there is a violation of one or more city ordinances.  If the violation has not been corrected after seven days, a Posting Notice is then issued.  If the property is still in violation, the owner/resident may then be issued a Summons and Complaint into Municipal Court.
How do I report a Code Violation?
