The City of South Hutchinson conducts code enforcement on a complaint basis. Code Enforcement cases are also sometimes initiated by staff action when issues are in plain sight and creating a nuisance.
A complaint comes into the office.
Code Enforcement makes a visit to the site to validate the complaint.
Code Enforcement makes contact with the property owner either in person or by mail to explain the complaint and give them a reasonable time to abate the complaint.
If abatement has not occurred in the reasonable time given a citation will be issued for appearance in Municipal Court.
