Code Enforcement

Code enforcement provides inspections, investigations, and compliance guidelines in the City for residential and commercial code and zoning violations. The focus is on the maintenance of neighborhood and community assets, thereby assuring the health, safety, and welfare of residents in all neighborhoods.

Code enforcement also coordinates the weed abatement program each spring. Property owners are notified to remove weeds, trash, and other material that constitutes a fire hazard. If a property owner fails to respond, the City performs the weed abatement through a private contractor and assesses the property owner for the incurred costs.
