The objectives of the North Bay Village Police Department Code Enforcement Unit are to protect the health, safety, and welfare of all property owners, residents, businesses, and visitors within our Village Limits. To establish standards and ordinances which ensure positive effects on property value, community appearance and neighborhood pride and to stay at the forefront of creative and effective Code Enforcement.
Adherence to Village Codes and maintenance of property is the responsibility of each and every citizen. Structures that are not maintained… deteriorate; devalue neighborhoods, and encourage crime, contributing to blight in our community. As the Village ages, it becomes even more critical for property owners to be aware and comply with these codes. Code Enforcement provides an effective tool for education and enforcement of the Code of Ordinances to ensure that our Village ages gracefully.
If you do receive a notice from Code Enforcement – Do Not ignore it
Find out how to correct the problem and do so promptly. You can ask for additional time provided you are actively working on solving the violations. Time extensions will not be allowed on serious problems. Remember to obtain any required permits to resolve your violations.
If you are unwilling to take the required action to correct the violations, there are several possible consequences. The Village can arrange for a lot to be cut and cleared. The cost is then billed to you. If legal action becomes necessary, you will be served a notice to appear before a Special Magistrate. You must explain your case, and ultimately correct the violations and may be ordered to pay fines, liens and charges.
