Article VII. Administrative Citations.
Sec. 14A-7-1. Legislative findings and statement of purpose.
The city council hereby finds that there is a need for an alternative
method of code enforcement to the traditional civil, criminal or administrative
abatement actions, to effect compliance with the Woodland Municipal Code, its
adopted codes and applicable state codes. The city council further finds that an
appropriate alternative method of enforcement for code violations is an
administrative citation program as authorized by Government Code Section
The procedures established in this article shall be in addition to
criminal, civil or administrative abatement or any other legal remedy
established by law, which may be pursued to address violations of the Woodland
Municipal Code, its adopted codes or applicable state codes.
Use of this
article shall be at the sole discretion of the city. (Ord. No. 1443,
