The Adopt a Park/Planter is a program offered through the City of Sanger Public Works Department. The program allows citizens, groups, and businesses the opportunity to contribute to the beautification of the City of Sanger. The City has 16 parks located throughout the City with various levels of amenities and landscaping. The City also has some planter areas located downtown that are available to be adopted.
Citizens, groups, and businesses may adopt a park or planter in which they plant and maintain the flowers/greenery. An entire park can be adopted or just particular area within parks such as playgrounds and basketball courts. With the adoption of a park or planter, you will be responsible for the maintenance of the area, litter removal, and the removal of any green waste.
The planter areas are located on the corners of or in front of businesses and parks. A majority of the planters are located in the Downtown area on 7th Street between O Street and Academy Avenue. The parks are located throughout Sanger.

The City of Sanger has 4 Code Enforcement Officers.
The code enforcement process is typically initiated in a couple of ways:
Code Enforcement relies on residents to help identify possible code violations, such as:
To report a concern about a possible code violation Click here or call us 559-876-6300 option. 7
Please be prepared with specific information, such as the address of the property, a short description of the possible violation. Complaints may be made anonymously, however, this may restrict Code Enforcement's ability to do a follow-up on the complaint or our ability to obtain additional information that we might need to resolve the situation.
Code Enforcement tries to respond to all complaints within 24 hours, however, some situations that may arise that pose a serious risk to health and safety are given priority and may delay in responding to some complaints.
For all types of code complaints, the first step in addressing the complaint is an inspection by the officer to see if any code violations actually exist, and if so, a written notice will be sent. The process of each notice depends on the violation, some indicting more time than others but most written notices come with a courtesy, first and final notice. If the individual response for the violation appears unwilling to correct or comply, the officer will attempt to make contact before starting a citation process.
In most cases, the individual responsible for the code violation is given the opportunity to voluntarily correct the situation and comply with the code without any penalty. If the correction is not made, then the individual may be cited and administration fees assessed.

Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is produced from heaters, fireplaces, furnaces, and many types of appliances and cooking devices. It can also be produced by vehicles that are idling.
They should be installed outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home including the basement. The manufacturers’ installation instruction should also be followed.
First and foremost, stay calm. As mentioned previously most situations resulting in activation of a carbon monoxide detector are not life-threatening and do not require calling 911.
To determine the need to call 911, ask the following question of everyone in the household:
If the answer to the above by anyone in the household is true, evacuate the household to a safe location and have someone call 911.
Both battery-powered and house current powered smoke detectors do a good job. Make sure the one you choose has been tested by a nationally recognized testing laboratory.
There should be at least one detector in every occupied bedroom and one on every floor of the house except attics unless the attic space is used for sleeping. Additional detectors will increase the chance of early detection.
Smoke detectors should be placed near bedrooms either on the ceiling at least 6 to 12 inches away from the wall or on the wall, 6 to 12 inches down from the ceiling. This allows the detector to sense the smoke as it approaches the sleeping area.
Battery operated detectors can be attached directly to the ceiling or wall. Wired-in electric detectors are somewhat more difficult to install and may require an electrician.
The notice is a courtesy reminder sent by the Fire Departments Community Risk Reduction Bureau to owners of vacant parcels within the City of Sanger reminding them that the cut down date is April 15th each year. Starting on April 15th, the Fire Department will be conducting inspections on the vacant properties. Properties not in compliance with the City Municipal Code and the California Fire Code will be issued a citation and an official Notice of Violation for compliance. After 10 days, if the lot is still not in compliance, the City of Sanger will have its contractor abate the problem and the property owner will be billed.
Yes. If you protest the code as it pertains to your parcel, or if you want to request an exemption from clearing the property at this time, you must submit the appeal in writing to:Sanger Fire DepartmentAttention: Weed Abatement1700 7th StreetSanger, CA 93657
Explain why it should be exempted. Parcels cannot arbitrarily be exempted.
The property will be cleared by the contractor and the property owner will incur all costs for the Abatement Procedure per Municipal Code 8.56.
The City's cost to clear a parcel will be high compared to what the cost would be private. The cost of city abatements is set by a contract agreement. An Administrative fee is then attached to the contractor’s costs.
At times, the records available are not always up to date. The notice is sent to the Owner of Record listed on the last county assessment roll. Please let Sanger Fire Department know immediately if you no longer own the property by calling 555-876-6389. Any new owner information is appreciated.
The lot may not have been included in the Annual Weed Abatement Program because records indicated that a change in ownership was recorded after the Notice of Violation was issued. To register a complaint regarding weed issues, please call Fire Departments Community Risk Reduction Bureau at 559-876-6389.
