Neighborhood Services

The Neighborhood Services Department (Community Compliance) provides community compliance (code enforcement) services by receiving, responding to, and investigating complaints of possible City Ordinance violations.

We’re here to help!  Our goal is code compliance, not punishment. We can refer qualified applicants to various programs and organizations for help in making repairs, property clean-ups, etc.  Code compliance is a community-wide effort, and keeps the City looking nice, clean and orderly – which helps to maintain and even increase property values!
