WHAT TO DO AFTER RECEIVING
A BLIGHT VIOLATION NOTICE
The Blight Violation Notice states the specific violation, the date, time,
and place that the alleged violation occurred and payment options
concerning the fine.
An appearance at a hearing is required to
contest the alleged violation. The notice will state the date, time and
place for your hearing. Questions about why you were cited must be
directed to the department that issued the violation. If you believe that
you or your property was cited by mistake, you are strongly encouraged to
appear for the scheduled hearing. Ignoring a Notice may result in a
decision and order of default being entered against you.
Contact the Buildings & Safety
Engineering Department (BSED) at (313) 224-2733 and ask to speak to the
Property Maintenance Division supervisor.
