Car on Front Lawn


Here's an example of a typical City Code violation that is addressed by Woodstock's Code Enforcement Officer, Donovan Day. This blue Pontiac four-door sedan is parked on the front lawn.

There is no front license plate and two For Sale signs are displayed in the side windows.

What does this do to property values in Woodstock? If the problem is not monitored carefully and addressed promptly, the problem grows.

The Code Enforcement Officer will visit the property and contact the tenant or owner. He'll explain the City Code, issue a Notice of Violation as documentation of the violation, and ask that the vehicle be moved off the front lawn.

Often, tenants and property owners don't even know they are in violation, and the "soft" approach by the City results in a positive interaction between the City and the public.

If you see a similar violation, just send an email to CodeEnforcement@woodstockil.gov and Donovan will check it out. Your name will not be revealed to the tenant or property owner in violation, and Donovan will handle everything professionally and courteously.
