The Code Enforcement Board that was implemented in January, 2005 has now been amended to a full scale enforcement mechanism. As of December 31, 2016 the Code Enforcement Board encompasses all aspects of the former Property Maintenance/Nuisance Board. It continues to be an appeal opportunity for a civil procedure rather than a criminal procedure through the courts and now hears appeals for violations of Property Maintenance Chapter 156 including, but not limited to, property maintenance violations and demolition orders. The recipient of a citation/violation notice/demolition order has seven (7) days from the date of the notice in which to request an appeal before the Board. Upon receipt of the request, the administrative staff will schedule the hearing and the individual will be sent by mail a notice of hearing, which states the date, time, and place of the hearing. To provide a more efficient process, it allows citizens to appeal a Notice of Violation or Citation issued that they believe was in error.
The ABC Board listens to local licensees, ground transportation companies, as well as taxi drivers who have violations the Louisville Metro ABC ordinance. The recipient of an order to show cause or notice of violation must appear before the hearing officer on the date and time provided.
