Code Enforcement

Our team is proactive in addressing code compliance issues and uses education, two-way dialogue, and collaboration to achieve your vision.

Our Code Compliance Program is consistent and customizable, making each community we partner with a better and safer place to live, play and work. Our team of officers are experts in simple and complex code issues covering building, accessibility, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, energy, and sprinkler codes and standards.

The more effective and successful a building code compliant operation is, the less the need for perceived intrusive and heavy-handed actions. We coordinate with citizens, property owners, and businesses through public information, education, and community outreach Our code officers have effective communication skills, are diplomatic negotiators, and use reasonable interpretations, and if necessary, implement formal enforcement and prosecution. All are key elements of successful code compliance operations.
