Code Enforcement addresses a wide range of property issues that affect our environment, health, safety, and property values that enhances the quality of life of our citizens.

It is often a difficult task in maintaining the balance between the rights of individual property owners and the welfare of the general public when enforcing the codes. Our code officers are here to assist you. Their skills have been refined through technology and continuing education.

Our goal is voluntary compliance of the codes before pursuing further action when property owners are noncompliant with County codes.
