The primary role of the Code Enforcement Department is to eliminate hazards that could affect public safety. This includes notifying residents and property owners of noncompliance issues which may exist such as:
Appliances left outside
Dilapidated / substandard structures
Rubbish or junk
While code enforcement officers can issue citations, their primary goal is for problems to be remedied by the property owner.
Additionally, the code enforcement office oversees sign placement, landscape watering codes, zoning issues, oak wilt regulations, home occupations, and issuance of peddlers permits.
