Fairfield police are warning residents about counterfeit code enforcement notices that are being left on residents’ vehicles. The fliers that are printed on yellow paper with the city’s logo in the upper left corner claim to be from the City’s Code Enforcement Division, police Lt. Greg Hurlbut said. The fliers claim the vehicle owner owes a $287 fine for a violation of City Code 7.6. The false notices claim to be from code enforcement officer “Eddie Felson.”

No such person works for the Fairfield Police Department and the city is not distributing the notices, Hurlbut said. Legitimate code enforcement notices contain the name of the vehicle owner, a number where the violation may be confirmed and instructions on how to correct the violation, Hurlbut said. Chapter 7 of the Fairfield Municipal Code pertains to the underground installation of electrical wiring for communication.
