Report a Junk Vehicle
An inspector will visit the property within three days to confirm the report. If confirmed, we'll let the property owner know their property is out of compliance and they will have 10 days to correct the violation. We'll reinspect the property after 10 days to confirm the issue has been resolved. If the issue has not been addressed after 10 days, the matter will be referred to Public Safety, who will tag the vehicle to notify the owner of escalating enforcement.
