Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement responds to citizen complaints, City Council requests for service, referrals for investigation/compliance, and inter-governmental enforcement agency referrals in a proactive manner. Staff conducts field inspections, prepares written notices/orders for code compliance, verifies compliance measures, prepares reports and requests for action by nuisance abatement, and educates the public on storm water compliance. Code Enforcement issues Notices of Violations to obtain compliance and issues infraction citation Notices to Appear. The enforcement program highlights voluntary non-judicial compliance with an emphasis upon public awareness of governmental regulatory provisions.
