§ 1.03.001 PURPOSE.
   (A)   The purpose of this chapter is to provide a comprehensive and uniform code enforcement program in order to insure compliance with all county ordinances that incorporate the remedies specified by this chapter.
   (B)   The Board of Supervisors finds that fair and effective code enforcement is needed to protect the health and safety of the residents of San Benito County and to preserve a healthy economic climate in the county. The Board further recognizes that there are scarce financial resources available to counties. The Board determines that these resources must be managed to economically enforce code compliance. The Board concludes that first resort to administrative remedies conserves the financial resources of all parties when compared to the high costs of litigation. Additionally, administrative remedies often result in faster resolution of violations. Finally, the Board desires to create a variety of enforcement remedies so as to maximize efforts to insure code compliance.
