Code Enforcement Division

The Code Enforcement Division works to reduce neighborhood nuisances and residential deterioration within the city. Typical violations include overgrown weeds, shrubs or trees, parking in the yard, junked vehicles, trash and debris.

Abatement Process

The process starts with a citizen complaint or a code enforcement officer's report. Once a complaint is filed with the city, the Code Enforcement Officer will issue a letter to the property owner stating the violations observed. The property owner then has 10 days to correct the problem. If after 10 days the violation still exists, the City will abate the violation and bill the property owner for the cost (plus an administrative fee). For questions concerning the abatement process, call (405) 793-5052.
