The goal for a Code Enforcement is to improve and preserve all neighborhoods of the City by careful, detailed inspection and record keeping, while working with property owners in a friendly, helpful and compassionate manner. Maintaining Housing stock in an above standard condition is a goal of this division.   The Code Enforcement Division enforces city code violations that are blight issues or hazards that are seen by the public view or reported to code enforcement. Personnel assigned to this program are responsible for investigating city code violations, seeking compliance via education and enforcement efforts up to and including civil/criminal prosecutions. 

COVID-19 UPDATE – Due to the heightened exposure risk inherent to code enforcement officers to the COVID-19 virus and to help prevent the further spread of this dangerous pathogen, we will not be conducting in home inspections until further notice (it will only be on a case-by-case basis).
