The Code Enforcement Division works to ensure that the provisions of the City’s Municipal Code are followed. The Division’s actions are driven by complaints, however it is also proactive when significant issues of the City and resident’s general health, safety, and welfare are involved.
The code enforcement process typically includes the filing of a complaint with the City’s Code Enforcement Division, investigation of the complaint by a Code Enforcement Officer, and notification to the property owner to correct any violation that exists. The Division’s primary goal is to assist in voluntary compliance with the code provisions, however if compliance is not achieved the City does pursue its available legal remedies.
Complaints that the City receives most often include issues related to property maintenance, building maintenance, abandoned vehicles on private property, animal control, illegal signs, construction without permits, and graffiti. If you are aware of such issues, or any other potential violations of the Municipal Code, and would like to register a complaint please contact the Code Enforcement Division at 310-544-5228, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information regarding some of these issues can be found in the quick link section of this page.
