Code Enforcement Officer:
In October 2013, the City of Nederland added a separate Code Enforcement Officer to take the proactive approach in addition to the compliant basis approach for daily routine patrols made throughout the city. Code enforcement provides essential and beneficial services that ensure quality of life within the City of Nederland. The Code Enforcement Department enforces minimum property standards and nuisance violations. The City of Nederland has adopted the 2009 International Property Maintenance Code for setting the minimum standards to be followed. The 2009 International Property Maintenance Code can be viewed here 2009 International Property Maintenance Code
The adopted amendments, additions and deletions to the International Property Maintenance Code are shown in Chapter 18-Article 7 of City Code of Ordinances viewed at the following link: www.municode.com
Code Enforcement is a service provided to properties within the city limits that are discovered to be in violation of city ordinances. The most common type of violation that the Code Enforcement Officer addresses is that involving weedy lots. Code Enforcement is an important tool of the city because it is the arm that verifies and seeks compliance with health and safety codes. If a property is found to be non-compliant, the Code Enforcement Staff will undergo the process of advising the owner of the discovered violation, providing a tenure to conform, verifying if compliance has been achieved by the due date, filing charges in Municipal Court for those that are still non-compliant, verifying prior to the court’s hearing date if the owner complied or not, representing the city at the court level, and then following up with the conditions of the court, which may involve a re-set of the case to a new docket which will involve the verification efforts all over again.
