Code Enforcement Overview

Updated: Oct 24, 2019

Code enforcement works to protect the health and safety of the city through ensuring the city's codes-land use, environmental, building-are enforced. Generally, a city will use a complaint-based system of enforcement and will focus first on code violations that present serious risk to public health and safety. Code enforcement offices will need strategies to communicate code changes to residents such as putting information in utility bills or publishing updates in the city newsletter.
