Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Division enforces a broad range of public health and safety regulations including:

  • Environmental
  • Health
  • Housing
  • Public nuisance
  • Zoning
  • Other safety codes that are designed to
    • Maintain a healthy, safe and clean environment
    • Carry out land use policy
    • Preserve the quality of life standards that residents and businesses enjoy in our community

Our neighborhoods are the environment in which we live and raise our families. Blight and nuisances can devalue, detract, and degrade the quality of any neighborhood. Recognizing the importance of protecting the home environment, the City has adopted codes that govern the use and maintenance of private property.
