Common Code Violations
Fences are designed to improve the looks of the property they are built on, and to keep things in and keep things out. Fence owners are required to maintain any fence visible from a public right-of-way. Notices of violation allowing thirty (30) days to correct the problem are given before penalties are imposed.
Reason for Regulation
Poorly maintained fences depreciate the property they are located on as well as surrounding properties. Fences that have broken or missing pickets can allow pets to escape and allow other pets to enter.
