What to Do After Receiving A Blight Violation

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.
