The Code Enforcement Division operates a comprehensive enforcement program and investigates violations of the State Health & Safety code; General Property Maintenance and the State structural codes (Building, Plumbing, Mechanical and Electrical Codes). The Division employs abatement procedures to correct code deficiencies. It is our goal to obtain voluntary compliance from the property and business owners we work with.
