Title: 1 - General Provisions

Chapter: 60 - Administrative Citations

Section: 40 - General Citation Procedures

Except as provided in section 1.60.50 the Enforcement Official shall issue an administrative citation immediately upon discovery of a violation of the Code. Upon receipt of an administrative citation, the responsible person shall pay the amount of the fine to the County within 15 days of the date of service of the citation. All fines shall be payable to the department that issued the citation. Payment of the fine shall not excuse or discharge the failure to correct the violation nor shall it bar further enforcement action by the County. If the responsible person fails to correct the violation, subsequent administrative citations may be issued for maintaining, continuing or repeating the same violation.
The general citation provisions in this section shall apply to violations pertaining to building, plumbing, electrical or other similar structural or zoning issue, and in the judgment of the Enforcement Official the violation does create an immediate danger to health or safety.
