If a Neighborhood Improvement Officer determines that a property is not in compliance with a municipal code, a notice of violation is sent to the owner allowing a certain number of days to correct the violation. If a violation is not corrected within the time allowed, the owner may receive a citation and fine. Any action that is taken in association with correcting the violation will be charged to the property owner. Failure to pay the fine will result in a lien being placed against the property.

The City's Municipal Code states that exterior holiday lights and decorations must be removed within 30 days of installation, and no later than mid January.

Homeowners found not to be in compliance will be issued a courtesy notice to correct violation within 10 days. Failing to remove the lights within the allotted time frame can result in a $100 fine.
