Code talking

Posted By on Mon, Mar 24, 2008 at 4:55 PM

Warning property owners:  City code enforcement officers will begin posting signs on your properties cited for a code violation.

City Manager Bruce Moore said the signs will let the public know "the city has taken action in enforcing the codes." 

More on the jump.

(Monday, March 24, 2008) – Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola and City Manager Bruce T. Moore announced today a new program of the Housing and Neighborhood Programs Department.

The Code Enforcement staff will begin posting signs to any property where a citation is issued.  This will let the citizens know that enforcement action has been taken and the owners are in court.

According to Moore, “Citizens may see a property that is in violation of City code and report that property to the City.  Though the City has made the enforcement process stricter, there is still an interval between the issuance of a summons and the completion of the action.   Prior to these signs, there has been no way for the public to know if any sort of the City has followed through with Code Enforcement action.  Now, the public can know that the City has taken action in enforcing the codes.”

Once the enforcement action is concluded, the sign will be removed.

 

The text of sign is as follows:

Little Rock District Court
Enforcement Action
 

The posted property has been investigated and found to be in violation of the Little Rock Code of Ordinances.

 

The responsible party has been cited and scheduled to appear in Little Rock District Court-Environmental.  Information on specific Court dates, times and any other enforcement information can be obtained by calling Housing and Neighborhood Programs at 371-4849.

 

IT IS UNLAWFUL TO REMOVE THIS SIGN

REMOVAL IS A FINE UP TO $500.00.
