Vision & Goals

Code Enforcement's Vision
A community where all residential and commercial properties are maintained in a fashion that emphasizes an aesthetically pleasing city. One that encourages community pride, preserves neighborhood integrity, protects the public health, safety, and welfare. As well as to assist in maintaining and even increasing property values.

Code Enforcement's Goals
The goal of our program is to encourage voluntary compliance and avoid punitive actions, also known as citations. A helping hand approach is more successful than the punitive approach as citizens may not be aware that their actions are in violation of city ordinances. Compliance with these ordinances ensures that city neighborhoods are clean, safe places to live, work, and play and can help reduce vandalism, deter crime and maintain property values.

While these goals may sound simple, cooperation and support from businesses, property owners, and citizens are necessary to make them attainable.
