Exterior Maintenance Inspection Program
Moreland Hills will soon begin an exterior maintenance inspection program. An inspector who works for MBIS, the firm that provides our Building Official, will drive through the community and evaluate the conditions of properties via an inspection from the street. If the Inspector sees a violation of the village’s ordinances, he or she will send a first notice of violation letter to the property owner. Property owners will have ten days to contact our Building Official, Dave Strichko, with either a plan to correct the violation(s) or with a statement of intent to appeal the violation(s). If the property owners do not contact Mr. Strichko within the ten-day period they will be expected to correct the listed violations within 30 days of the date on the initial violation letter. A follow-up inspection will be made after 30 days. If the owner has corrected the violation(s) the file will be closed. However, if the violations still exist, the Inspector will generate a second violation ticket. If the property owner refuses to cooperate with Mr. Strichko and does not file an appeal, the matter will be turned over to the Village Prosecutor to proceed with legal action.
