The goal of code enforcement is to promote a safe, attractive community and maintain and enhance property values. It uses a variety of tools in an effort to achieve compliance. Education is just one tool that we use to work with property owners to address a violation. We will work with owners and provide a timeline to resolve the issue and to improve the quality of life in your neighborhood.
