As part of the City’s response to COVID-19, the City has moved to modified operations until further notice. The City remains open; however, possible code violation cases will be prioritized based on the severity of the issue and the potential harm to public health and safety. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we all do our part to address this global health crisis.
