Fences shall be in good condition and shall not deviate from the maintenance standards as follows:

  • The fence shall not be out of vertical alignment more than tweny-five (25) degrees.
  • Any and all broken, damaged, removed or missing parts of the fence shall be replaced within seven (7) days of the event causing non-compliance with the same material, size, shape and quality of the original fence.
  • Fences shall not be externally braced in lieu of replacing or repairing posts, columns, or other structural members.

When a complaint is received, a code enforcement officer will inspect the property and if in violation, a notice will be sent to the property owner and/or tenant giving them seven (7) days to bring the property into compliance. If the violation still remains after this time frame, a citation may be issued.
