Frequently Asked Questions

Voluntary compliance is always preferred.

If a representative of the Town of Greece Technical Services Department determines that a building or premise is in violation of any code, rule or regulation, notice will be made by either regular mail, personal service or the posting of an order on the property. The notice will provide a specified number of days to comply. Failure to comply within the time specified may result in the issuance of an official Notice and Order, and/or an appearance ticket for the Greece Town Court. The Town may also have the necessary work performed to correct the violation(s) and bill the owner of the property for the cost of the work. Unpaid charges are added to the property tax bill.

Any person convicted of a violation of the Town of Greece Property Maintenance Law may be punished by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000) or by imprisonment not to exceed one (1) year or both for each violation. Each day that the violation continues constitutes a separate offense and the penalties above are applicable to each offense.

Any individual may anonymously register a complaint by visiting, writing, or calling the Supervisor’s Office at 225-2000 or by submission through the Contact Us page. Please select Code Compliance from the Departments dropdown menu and click Submit. It is not necessary to provide identification. A Technical Services Department representative will conduct an on-site evaluation of the area in question to determine what action is warranted.
