Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Department issues all Building Permits and is responsible for administering and enforcing codes and ordinances involving construction and repair of all buildings and structures in the City, including building, housing, plumbing, electrical and zoning ordinances. Environmental and nuisance codes are also enforced by the Code Enforcement Department.

The Department continues its work on housing and redevelopment issues. Staff works with the Building Board of Adjustments and Appeals to evaluate properties that pose risks to the public or occupants’ safety.  The Code Enforcement Department administers both of these efforts, working closely with the Council-appointed Advisory Boards and neighborhood leaders, along with a host of professional organizations interested in neighborhood preservation efforts.  

Code Enforcement staff also provides support to the Board of Building and Housing Code Appeals and the Trade Licensing Board.
