What Is A Code Violation

WHAT IS A CODE VIOLATION
Our community is the environment in which we live, work and raise our families.  Blight and nuisances can devalue, detract and degrade the quality of any community.  Recognizing the importance of protecting the home environment, the City has adopted codes that govern the use and maintenance of private property. While many of the City's codes deal with private residential property, there are codes that regulate the condition of commercial properties as well.

WHAT IS NOT A CODE VIOLATION
Your valuable tax dollars are at work, and we want to expend City resources appropriately and efficiently.  There are some community problems that do not fall under code enforcement.  In general, code enforcement may act on behalf of the public at large – not to take action on behalf of one citizen against another.  Also code enforcement cannot enforce CC&R's (Covenants, Codes & Restrictions).  CC&R's should be enforced through a neighborhood homeowners association, or a civil suit may be filed.
