Within Public Works Department is Code Enforcement. Code Enforcement includes the inspection, improvement, and rehabilitation of environmental hazards on public and private property by determining the presence of health hazards, nuisance violations, unsafe building conditions, junked and inoperable motor vehicles and violations of any health regulations or ordinances. Violations may be located by the Code Enforcement Officer or reported by any person. Upon inspection by the Code Enforcement Officer, the violator is notified of the violation, instructed on possible solutions and given a time frame in which to have the violation corrected. The primary role of the Code Enforcement is to eliminate hazards that could affect public safety. While the code enforcement officer can issue citations, their primary goal is for problems to be corrected by the property owner.
