Code Compliance

Code Compliance is a vital aspect of our City for safety and appearance in neighborhoods and business districts. The City’s Code Compliance Division enforces codes and ordinances that cover signage, overgrowth, junk, inoperable vehicles, improperly parked vehicles and substandard housing.

Code Compliance Division staff works closely with citizens, operating under the belief that City residents deserve to live in neighborhoods where quality-of-life issues are met and monitored.

A new online portal allowing citizens to report a violation and check on the status of open cases is now available. TRAKiT is a great way to give our citizens the ability to review any Code questions from the comfort of their home. TRAKiT
