What happens if I am caught working without a permit?

By State law all permit fees are doubled. The City has also adopted a $1,000.00 fine for contractors or $250.00 for home owners doing their own work without a permit. The Code Enforcement Special Magistrate will review all such fines following the receipt of a written request from the property owner(s). The owner will then be notified of their hearing date via a Notice to Appear from the Code Enforcement Section.
