The first step in every code enforcement process is the completion of a Request for Action Form. This form provides the code official with the the information they need to begin a fact based, thorough, and safety investigation into the complaint.

The Code Enforcement Process
The Request for Action form serves as a formal request for action by City staff. All complaints will be investigated and those determined to be in violation of Bonney Lake Municipal Code (BLMC) will be processed accordingly.
Typically, when a violation is found the property owner and/or person in possession of the property is notified in writing with a "Notice of Violation." This notice provides a description of the violation, the steps needed to correct the violation, and the timeline in which it is to be corrected. If the City recieves no response or the property owner/person in possession of the property declines to voluntary comply the City may pursue civil and/or criminal charges.
