The Code Enforcement Task Force is an enforcement team comprised of individuals from various departments with the most applicable expertise who have enforcement responsibilities. Often times the team is made up of outside agencies as well, such as North County Fire, San Mateo County Environmental Health and San Mateo County Adult and Child Services.
The focus of the Task Force is to remove dangerous conditions as soon as possible. When a property is found to have multiple violations, the Task Force responds to that property. Once assembled, the Task Force is a viable enforcement and problem solving team who work together with the property owner towards abatement of the cited violations. The code of violation abatement, including staff time, is charged back to the property owner.
The Code Enforcement Task Force team provides professional guidance on enforcement matters, violations and related issues, with the common goal of voluntary abatement.
