Code Enforcement Division


The Code Enforcement Division oversees the application and enforcement of the City’s Property Maintenance Code and Nuisance Code.

Responsible property ownership and maintenance is at the heart of neighborhood stability. While property ownership confers important rights, it also confers equally important responsibilities on the owner. While most owners meet their obligations, maintaining their properties and complying with codes so they do not cause harm to their occupants, their neighbors and their communities, many do not. In those cases, local government has been tasked with encouraging negligent owners to carry out their responsibilities; and if they do not, taking action to minimize the harm to the community. This is the role of the Code Enforcement Division.
