You can check the status of existing code cases, view violations, inspection results, previous actions and pending actions through the Customer Self-Service portal's Search Public Information page.
You can also view status of recent cases through the Code Compliance Service Request Access recent requests page.
Abatement of code violations, in some cases, may take several days or even weeks. The City must first notify the property owner of the violation at the location or by postal mail by certified letter. In most cases, the property owner (or tenant) has 7 to 10 days to resolve the violation.
If the violation remains after 10 days, the city may issue a citation and fine. Violations, citations and fines continue to be issued until the problem is resolved. Only in extreme cases will the city take action to clear the property of the violation if it presents a public health and safety hazard. (Refer to the City of Grand Prairie's Code of Ordinances - Code Compliance section.)
