Code Enforcement

A code enforcement officer is responsible for investigating, evaluating, educating and enforcing adopted City and other applicable codes. This can be in the form of answering questions, issuing warnings or issuing citations for code violations.

Even though some issues may result in violations, the City’s code enforcement officers’ main objective is to ensure an attractive, lawful and safe community. Code Enforcement Officers perform a variety of office and fieldwork related  to code compliance with City, County and State codes and regulations. 

Officers also are committed to customer service by providing information on City regulations to homeowners, business and community groups which help enhance and preserve the quality of neighborhoods and businesses.
