ENB-18.26 - OSD Garbage Referrals

Administrative Rule Adopted by Office of Neighborhood Involvement
ARB-ENB-18.26

 
Definition:
Neighborhood Inspections investigates and takes the appropriate action on any property without garbage service that has been referred to Neighborhood Inspections from the Office of Sustainable Development (OSD).
 
Policy: 
It is the policy of Neighborhood Inspections to investigate each referral made by OSD. The support staff takes the following steps:
* Contact the hauler to determine if there is current service at the property.
  • if there is service at the property the case is closed.
  • if there is no garbage service a case is opened and given to the area inspector.
* The area inspector takes the following steps:
  • confirms with the hauler that there is no service at the property.
  • determines if the property is occupied and if it is a rental.
  • inspects the property to see if there is garbage, other significant nuisance or housing violations at the property. If so, the inspector posts the property and there is the potential for code enforcement fines.
  • if there is no garbage issue at the property, and if OSD has informed the inspector that the property owner has been cited for illegal dumping, the property is posted for lack of garbage service and there is the potential for code enforcement fines.
  • if there is no garbage issue at the property and the property owner has not been cited for illegal dumping, the case is closed and no enforcement action is taken.
