How do I request a reconsideration of the city staff’s interpretation of the Municipal Code?
When a notice of violation letter is prepared, the Code Enforcement officer is required to give the Municipal Code section that is violated. If a violator disputes the city staff’s interpretation of the Municipal Code section, that determination is appealable to the Community Development director. This could be an informal appeal to the director and could be done through a meeting with the director or more formally through a written appeal. The decision of the Community Development director is appealable to the Planning Commission, upon filing of the required forms and fee. The decision of the Planning Commission is appealable to the City Council, upon filing of the required forms and fee.
