Permits and Applications

Code Enforcement

A code violation is any use of land, including vacant properties and buildings, which is contrary to the provisions of the Hendricks City Code. Once a complaint is received, the City’s Code Enforcement Officer logs the information in a database. The complaints are ranked according to priority, with health and safety issues taking precedence over violations that do not pose an immediate health or safety risk. The Enforcement Officer will conduct a site visit and, if a violation is confirmed, a warning letter (Notice of Violation) will be mailed to the property owner. The Code Enforcement Officer will give the property owner a deadline to abate all violations on the site. This deadline will vary according to the number and type of violation(s) on site.
