The Code Enforcement Division performs general City code enforcement to preserve community standards and protect community health, welfare and quality of life.
City codes and standards applying to housing, structures, property maintenance and zoning, and land use are enforced in a responsible, courteous, and impartial manner. Code enforcement action is typically complaint-initiated. When the City receives a complaint, the enforcing officer investigates the validity of the complaint and takes necessary actions until all issues are resolved.
