Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement Officers work normal business hours. For urgent responses, please call 9-1-1.

  1. Nuisance Properties

You may report or inquire about the condition of a property in person, by phone or online.

If you leave a message, please include specific details about the location and condition of the property. You may submit an anonymous report.

Once a case has been opened on a property, Code Enforcement Officers work with the property owners to gain compliance. Generally this is voluntary and completed in a timely manner.

If the property owner does not choose to comply or has extenuating circumstances, progress may be slow or not evident for a period of time. You may contact Code Enforcement for updated information on a case.

All citizens are given reasonable due process to abate the nuisance dependent on the urgency of the condition.

Notice of Nuisance Properties

If you have received a Notice of Violation, you will have been given specific details about the condition that needs to be remedied and a time frame within which to comply. Failure to comply may result in civil fines. Fine may be charged per violation. Each day a violation is allowed to continue constitutes an additional violation.

Fines must be paid within 15 days.

You may request a Hearing within 15 days of a fine or official Notice and Order being issued. Hearings are held at the Mountlake Terrace Police Department every other month with a Hearing Examiner presiding.
