Responding to Violation Notices
You should never ignore a letter received from the City of Warsaw Building and Planning Department informing you of an ordinance violation that exists on your property. If the problem is not corrected, the property owner can be subject to fines, civil or criminal charges, and possible demolition of the building, if it is found to be dangerous.
For the benefit of its residents, the City of Warsaw reserves the authority to remove trash, weeds, and junk autos; board up buildings; and order property owners to make repairs. The property owner will be billed for any actions taken by the city. If not paid, the bill will be legally pursued for collection, possibly resulting in a lien being placed against the property. Please remember these ordinances act as a service to the residents of the City of Warsaw to ensure their safety.
If you have any questions regarding a letter you may have received from the City of Warsaw Building and Planning Department, call (574) 372-9548 immediately to discuss it.
