- The violation process is handled by the GA – The GA sends a “friendly reminder” letter to the homeowner advising of the violation, what must be done to remedy the violation and the number of days to be completed. This letter has been changed over the last year to be less aggressive, but still contain the needed language to be upheld in Court if the need arises.
- If the violation is not remedied, a second letter is sent advising that the violation remains and a hearing may be called.
- If the resident still makes no contact with the GA or does not remove the violation, a hearing date is set.
- If the violation is still in place on the date of the hearing, the hearing is held by the Property Manager, Town Architect and resident with the violation. Fines are determined at this hearing.
- Many times residents may remove a violation (for instance, a trash can), only to repeat the violation several months later.
