The Division is charged with protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public.  Their purpose is to respond to and cause to be removed those nuisances that affect the public's enjoyment of either.  Code Enforcement Officers are sworn individuals authorized to issue and serve appearance tickets to any violator of the City's building, zoning, environmental and other city codes.  

The Division currently operates with one code officer who continuously trains in their field in order to provide the city's residents with the highest level of service. Code enforcement is committed to carrying out the intent of the city's codes and ordinances. Code Officers work cooperatively with other city departments relaying and exchanging information valuable to the City interests.  Officers also work with neighborhood and city organizations providing assistance in various capacities.
