Reporting Code Violations

Residents who see conditions in their neighborhood that may be violations of the City code and ordinances are urged to contact the Department of Code Enforcement & Zoning.

Often the resident may find that the City is aware of the problem and action is pending. If not, an inspector will respond to the property and take appropriate action. Staff in the Department of Code Enforcement & Zoning will provide residents with the status of a condition as requested.

Confidentiality of Reports

Callers reporting possible code violations may identify themselves, but identification is not required. All concerns reported will be investigated in confidence and appropriate action is taken.
