Public Hearings Set for ACE Draft Ordinance

On Monday, the Council’s Budget & Finance Committee will meet and consider the draft ordinance relative to establishing a citywide Administrative Citation Enforcement (ACE) Program to be administered by the Office of the City Attorney. If approved, the ordinance would create a special fund entitled the Code Compliance Fund.

Under this proposed 6-month pilot program, City enforcement officers would be authorized to issue administrative citations as an alternative to issuing a verbal warning, a written Notice to Comply or other type of citation (i.e., excessive noise or open container violations).

This matter is also scheduled for City Council consideration on Wednesday, October 5th.

You are encouraged to attend both the Budget & Finance Committee meeting and the City Council meeting and make your opinions known during the public comment portions of these meetings.

The committee meets on October 3, 2011, 2:00pm, in Room 1010 at City Hall.
