Citations may be issued at the discretion of the enforcement official. When routine violations of the applicable code are encountered, citations will generally be issued subsequent to the second visit, reinspection, or other notice of violation.
Adequate time, as determined by the enforcement official, shall be provided between inspections. This will vary with the seriousness of the violation and the complexity of the work to be done.
In those instances where the time limit for compliance has expired but the violator is making a reasonable effort to comply and no immediate life, environment or property hazard exists, the decision whether or not to issue a citation may be made by the enforcement official.
