An inspector is assigned to inspect the location and determine if the location is City Owned and/or Privately Owned.  If privately owned, notifications must be made to the property owner of the violation and given a short time frame to abate the violation themselves and if not answered within that time frame, a citation is issued to the property owner and then it is placed on a schedule to have it cut and cleaned. This can take some time to have the lots cut and cleaned out.
