Code enforcement

The building commission is responsible for evaluating private properties and public grounds against local codes, answering citizen questions about the codes, and issuing citations for code violations. The Code Enforcement Officer may or may not be a certified police officer. Code enforcement officers work to maintain an attractive, safe, community, which helps improve both property values and the quality of life of those in the community.

Job duties for such officers can vary dramatically from community to community. Some respond primarily to reports about unsightly lawns (tall grass or trash), excess signage, nuisance animals, abandoned vehicles and/or illegal parking. Others also verify business permits, condemn unsafe buildings, or enforce zoning regulations. Localities that do not staff building inspectors may use code enforcement officers to offer construction planning and inspection services.
