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 53069.4.
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, § 3 (part).)
