More Detail Required on Notices of Building Code Violations

If signed by the Governor, Illinois SB 3406 would require municipal officials to include on any notice of violation of a building code (1) a citation to the specific code provision alleged to be violated and (2) a description of the circumstances giving rise to the violation.  This is a change to the current language that requires violation notices to indicate "the type and nature of the violation."  Code officials and others who write up these violation notices should be advised that beginning January 1, 2013, they will need to provide more detail about the violation and cite the specific code section or sections being violated.  The same requirement applies to notices of violations of sanitation ordinances.
