We understand that unique circumstances may make it difficult for an owner/occupant to correct a violation within the time-frame originally specified on a Notice of Violations and Order to Correct (“Notice”). Per department policy (#8012), staff is allowed to grant a reasonable extension of time so that compliance can be achieved.
Each Extension Request will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration the following criteria: 1. A good faith effort has been/is being made to correct the violation(s). 2. The granting of the extension does not pose a significant risk to public safety, health, or welfare. 3. Undue hardship will result to the requesting party unless the extension is granted.
No time extension will be granted for violations that are deemed to be immediately dangerous to public safety, health, or welfare.
