Code Enforcement & Nuisance Board

The Code Enforcement & Nuisance Board (CENB) is a quasi-judicial governing body that hears appeals concerning citations for code violations. CENB implements remedies and imposes fines through application of standards in the International Property Maintenance Code.

  • Dismissal of violation citations that are not proven
  • Issuance of orders sanctioning fines up to the maximum
  • Request for timely remedies of ongoing violations
  • Waiver of monetary charges on special circumstances
  • Extensions for resolving a code violation must be requested in writing including sound justification that original timeframe allotted for meeting compliance measures was inadequate.
