What is the process when code violations are found?
A letter is sent to the residents and/or owners notifying them of the violation and a time limit is given for compliance. If contact isn’t made with the Code Enforcement Officer or no visible changes are made, then another notice is hand delivered or sent certified. The City of Minden will take appropriate actions to clean-up the property if not done by the residents and/or owners.
