How are codes enforced?

Process

The code enforcement process is typically initiated in a couple of ways:

  1. Observation of a code violation by C/E Officer
  2. In response to a complaint by an individual

Identifying Possible Code Violations

Code Enforcement relies on residents to help identify possible code violations, such as:

  • Abandoned/Vacant houses and lots
  • Abandoned and/or inoperable vehicles
  • Graffiti on public or private property
  • Illegal dumping of trash and debris
  • Illegal signs
  • Large commercial vehicles parked in residential neighborhoods.
  • Overgrown weeds and vegetation.
  • Portable basketball hoops on streets or sidewalks
  • Vehicles parked on front lawns or unimproved surfaces in a residential zone.
