Title

Ordinance Changing "Violator" to "Alleged Violator" and Making a Clarification to Code Violation Process (B)

 

Ordinance No.  200431

 

An ordinance of the City of Gainesville, Florida, making scriveners revisions to several code sections to change "violator" to "alleged violator" and amending Sec. 2-388.1(a) to clarify process for a violation; providing directions to the codifier; providing a severability clause; providing a repealing clause; and providing an immediate effective date.

 

Explanation

On October 3, 2019, the City Commission requested the City Attorney's Office prepare an ordinance changing certain code of ordinance references from "violator" to "alleged violator" where an adjudication has not yet occurred.  During the preparation of this ordinance, the City Attorney's Office found that Sec. 2-388.1(a) regarding code enforcement violations could benefit from clarification.  These revisions have all been made in this ordinance.

 

Fiscal Note

None

 

Recommendation

The City Commission adopt the proposed ordinance.
