Code Enforcement

Ordinances aimed at regulating the living standards of city residents are often passed to address issues of blight, noise, unsafe construction, litter and other unseemly or dangerous property conditions.  A city can effectively enforce these codes by means of civil penalties such as fines, liens and, if necessary, prosecution through the courts or a code enforcement board.  Cities and counties will often undergo a joint enforcement effort to take advantage of shared planning and zoning efforts or to take advantage of economies of scale.  These agreements generally take place in more rural environments where residential codes are less restrictive.
