Code Compliance provides comprehensive oversight of residential and commercial properties in order to protect and enhance public health and safety, and maintain the City's municipal code standards. By means of information, education, and the administrative remedy program, Code Compliance addresses the following types of issues (this is not an exhaustive list):
- business license
- solid waste
- property maintenance
- water conservation
- short term vacation rentals
The Code Compliance Division seeks to maintain the quality of the existing housing stock by implementing and enforcing residential property maintenance laws. Primary enforcement efforts are directed toward issues affecting public health, safety, and welfare. Other areas of focus are the identification of units constructed or remodeled without appropriate permits, compliance with smoke detector laws and special attention is paid to vacant and abandoned properties.
Additionally, Code Compliance administers the City's regulatory business license program, which provides services to regulate business classifications, as well as application processing, license issuance, records management, compliance inspections, and public hearings before the Business License Commission, the City Council, and other boards/commissions as appropriate.

Additionally, messages can be left on the Code Compliance message line at any time and if an officer is on duty, they will respond as promptly as possible.
