County staff respond to code enforcement complaints according to the impact of the violation on the community. Situations that appear to pose a serious risk to health and safety as well as disabled access complaints are given high priority. Others are pursued in the order in which they are received. For most code complaints a Courtesy Letter is sent out informing the property owner that they may have a code violation and to contact the code enforcement officer. For serious health and safety, disabled access and work being done without a permit, a code enforcement officer is sent out to ascertain if a violation exists and to request remediation. This is initiated with a Notice to Comply letter.
