Code Enforcement is, by definition, enforcement of the City’s Code of Ordinances. These ordinances are put in place to protect citizens’ well-being, rights, and property values. They also ensure that everyone in the community abides by the same rules and regulations.
The Ordinance Committee works long and hard to take the concerns and desires of our citizens into consideration before recommending changes to the Council. Any and all changes are made for the betterment of our community as a whole. It is the Council’s intention to create a safe and pleasing environment, to attract residential and commercial development, plan for the future while respecting our heritage, improve infrastructure, and maintain fiscal responsibility.
The City has been very successful at educating the community on the ordinances and obtaining voluntary compliance. To report a code violation contact the Building Official at 817-710-2518 or the City Secretary at 817-710-2526, for assistance. Dial 911 to report a code violation that is causing immediate danger to people or property (animal issues).
