The Code Enforcement Division of Development Services is responsible for enforcement of the majority of the City's Code of Ordinances and Land Development Code. Keeping properties code compliant protects and enhances property values and makes the City a more attractive place to live, work and play.
The Code Enforcement Division receives complaints from a variety of sources including citizens, businesses, other staff members and outside agencies. Staff inspects and investigates those complaints to see if a violation of City Code exists then begins taking the appropriate steps to achieve compliance. Those steps can involve both an informal and/or formal process. Cases that are not voluntarily brought into compliance may be presented to a Special Magistrate at a formal public hearing.
