Code Enforcement

The City of Jacksonville currently has funding for two full time licensed code enforcement officers.  These officers are responsible for inspecting every lot located inside the city limits, looking for compliance with city ordinances pertaining to maintenance, sanitation, rehabilitation, conservation and safety of existing residential and commercial properties.  The department monitors around 76 violations a month.  To accomplish this, the city is divided into seventeen (17) zones and the inspections are done by driving every street in a zone until all zones have been inspected. Concerned citizens are encouraged to call and report possible violations.

 The City of Jacksonville codes are intended to benefit everyone while making our neighborhoods a better place to live, work, and play. Compliance with these standards can reduce vandalism, deter crime, maintain property values, and prevent deterioration of your neighborhood.
