WHAT TO DO IF YOU RECEIVE A CORRECTION ORDER

It is important to understand that a correction order is not a fine. It is an opportunity to take action to remedy a violation before a fine is levied. Every correction order references:


  • The section of the Municipal Code which constitutes the violation
  • A description of the violation
  • What corrective action(s) need to be taken to abate the violation
  • A deadline date stating when the corrective action(s) must be completed
  • The name of the Code Enforcement Officer who issued the correction order

If you are unable to complete the corrective action by the deadline date or you have other questions, please contact the Officer who issued the correction order at 307-725-5300 Ext. 2238.
