Violations at a property are tracked for a 12-month period. Each violation that occurs is assigned a point value from 1 to 3. When 5 or more points accumulate, a notice of violation is sent to the property owner. A correction plan is requested in the notice. The property owner also has the option to request an informal meeting with the Director of the Division of Health and Neighborhood Services
When 10 or more points accumulate, a permit suspension notice is sent and the permit suspension process is initiated.
