Yes. Permits can be revoked when the city issues a fourth health, nuisance or other violation when the permit holder has been subject to three health, nuisance or other code violations resulting in citations and fines payable to the city within the previous three calendar years (excluding snow and/or tree tickets). If a permit is revoked the city will provide reasonable opportunity for the owner to correct the code issue. Appeals go through an independent hearing examiner after written notice-of-appeal is provided within 15 days after decision to revoke the rental permit, along with a $50 processing fee. (See 30.40 (b) for details about what needs to be included in the appeal request).
Once revoked, a renewal permit will be issued only after all code violations have been corrected and approved by city inspection and all citations paid.
Property defects in violation of city ordinances may lead to revocation or suspension of a rental permit. The property may also be barred from being operated as a residential unit through other legal means.
Reissuing a permit for residential rental does not provide approval for any violations or issues that are active at the time of permitting.
