Can a code compliance officer issue a citation?
In general Code Compliance Officers will seek alternatives to such action. However, Code Compliance Officers are authorized to issue citations requiring persons to appear at Municipal Court to answer for offenses. The Code Compliance Officer may also choose to file charges with the Court which will then notify the person charged with an offense. Repeat offenders may expect citation or summons to court.
