Enforcement Summons

A summons is issued notifying property owner(s) of said violations and given instruction on how to meet compliance and when to appear in Environmental Court. Re-inspection is made if the property owner advises that they have met compliance or the day before their court appearance and if at anytime prior to the court date compliance has been met the case will be cleared and dismissed.

Environmental Court
