The Code Compliance Division is responsible for the inspection of public or private premises for the purpose of identifying environmental hazards including health hazards, nuisance violations, unsafe building conditions and violations of any health or building regulation, statute or ordinance and improving and rehabbing those premises. Inspections are completed and notices sent to the proper person.
The notices allow for a reasonable period of time to make any correction to the property. The Code Officer will follow-up to determine if there is any further action required, such as hiring a contractor to correct the problem, or issuing a citation to Municipal Court. In many cases several attempts to communicate with the person in control of the property are made before further action is taken. The Code Division is committed to helping the residents in understanding the ordinances and the violations and how they affect the community. The Code Division regularly attends Homeowner Association meetings and Town Hall meetings to help educate the residents on the codes and regulations in the city.
Most violations give you a minimum of ten (10) days to resolve the violation. The violation notice you receive will indicate the number of days to gain compliance.
Your code officer is listed on the City Web Site under Code Compliance Division. The city is divided into three (5) districts, and each officer is responsible for surveying and work on complaints to follow-up inspections.
Code Officers have historically been perceived as a negative part of city government by its citizens because typically it is the department that has to say "no" to the community. In reality however the code officer is there to protect the community's quality of life. Code Officers are here to educate the residents rather than to force compliance. By inspecting properties and meeting with residents, the Code Division will help you to understand the reason for the ordinance and how it affects you and your community. Most citizens cherish there right to have the quiet enjoyment of their property and the Code Division is here to help with meeting that expectation.
