Code Enforcement is the part of the City that works with residents and businesses of Dayton to promote awareness and encourage compliance of the Municipal Code. Our focus is to help residents identify possible code violations and to help assist in solutions to correct those issues.
We investigate nuisances such as:
Notice of Violation: In most cases Code Enforcement personnel first provides the person responsible for the code violation with the opportunity to voluntarily correct the problem. We notify the responsible party of the violation by mail to make them aware of the problem and ask them to address the issue.
Citation: When the responsible party does not voluntarily correct the code violation, a Code Violation Citation can be issued by either the Code Enforcement Officer or by a Yamhill County Deputy. Fine Amounts are as follows:
Nuisance Abatement: If the nuisance continues to go uncorrected then the City may choose to abate the nuisance. Abatement begins with a notice that is posted on the property where the nuisance exists. The notices will direct the property owner or person responsible for the nuisance to correct the nuisance. If the property owner or responsible party does not correct the problem within the time specified on the notice the City will correct the problem and bill the responsible party for the costs. Liens may be placed upon real property to secure repayment to the taxpayers for the costs expended by the City to abate the nuisance.
