The Code Enforcement Department's goal is to protect the public's health, safety and welfare, while ensuring the citizen's rights to a clean, enjoyable neighborhood. Primary duties include providing information about City codes (City and Zoning) for property maintenance, zoning and signage, and encouraging voluntary compliance. Proactive field inspections and response to citizen complaints lead to enforcement through established procedures when voluntary compliance does not occur.
Report a Violation
There are two ways to report a violation, you can fill out an online form or contact the Interim Code Enforcement Officer, Jerald Smith, directly.
When contacting Mr. Smith please give the exact address of the property in violation, if possible, and explain in detail what you believe to be in violation. You are not required to leave your name and telephone number when you report a violation, but it is helpful. In some cases, the Code Enforcement Officer may need to obtain more information from you to resolve the violation, or let you know that the complaint was not a valid code violation.
Please note: All records are public information. If you wish to remain anonymous in your complaint, you will not be updated on the status or outcome of the case.
