Ch. 40U Ordinance Information
City Departments Implement New Code Enforcement Ordinance
The City of Revere, along with several departments across City Government, are embarking on a collaborative effort to combat problem properties using Mass General Laws, Ch. 40U for code enforcement.
What this means for the community:
- Tickets will be issued with a fine up to a maximum of $500 per violation/per day
- Owner has initial 21 day period to pay or request a hearing
- If no response, owner receives additional notification providing an additional 30 days to pay
- If unpaid after the 30 day period, the ticket, regardless of the initial amount, increases to the maximum $500 and is automatically transferred to the City Collector and becomes a charge against the property that will show up on a Municipal Lien Certificate and the tax bill.
These new regulations went into effect on Thursday April 30, 2015. If residents have questions, please call the Inspectional Services Department at 781-286-8176.
