Code Enforcement Service Goals and Standards

What is Code Enforcement?

The Code Enforcement program enforces municipal codes pertaining to substandard housing, property maintenance and land-use in an effort to upgrade residential properties to the standards set forth in the Uniform Housing Code.  The program initiates community teamwork through public education, participation in Task Force groups and public cooperation.

Code Enforcement officers respond to citizen complaints submitted to the City, in addition to initiating proactive enforcement as appropriate.  On-site inspections and public education are major components of Code Enforcement's functions as well as collaboration with City departments, task force groups and outside agencies.

Other functions include:

Division Staffing

The Code Enforcement Division is staffed by five personnel, including four Code Enforcement Officers assigned to specific enforcement areas within the City, and one Code Enforcement Supervisor who provides field support to the officers in addition to assistance on more challenging cases requiring specific expertise and extensive experience.

These five officers have cumulatively over 100 years of code enforcement experience among them, and have achieved numerous certifications from professional organizations such as the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers (CACEO), the American Association of Code Enforcement (AACE), and the International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO). This continued professional growth ensures they remain informed and aware of the most current enforcement techniques, regulations and legislation pertaining to Code Enforcement.
