Code Enforcement enforces city ordinances that provide a safe community and vibrant neighborhoods. In addition, Code Enforcement is responsible for increasing public understanding of the city's policies and procedures, through community events and participation, and various media outlets. Code Enforcement Officers promote a healthy and safe environment for citizens and visitors by handling the following complaints:
- Houses or buildings that do not meet the Minimum Housing Code. Make a MHC complaint.
- Yards or vacant lots that are a Public Nuisance because of high weeds, trash and debris. Make a PN complaint.
- Junk & Abandoned Vehicles that are parked on private property. Make a vehicle complaint.
While many people think that problems can be immediately resolved by a visit from an officer, there is often a due process that must take place using Certified letters and follow up inspections.
