Code Compliance

The Code Compliance Coordinator responds to citizen complaints regarding building, zoning, and land use, in Jefferson County. The Code Compliance Coordinator works in partnership with the County’s Environmental Public Health and Sheriff’s Offices on nuisance complaints. Complaints are investigated to determine if there is a violation of County code, the extent of the violation, and the appropriate action required. The Code Compliance Coordinator works with all affected parties to resolve or mitigate violations.

Due to the many years of this position not being funded, the back-log of complaints is great.  The new Coordinator is working to process and purge years of old complaints and respond appropriately. Along with processing cases we are also working towards building the Code Compliance Program, which will focus on a clear and understandable compliance, education and enforcement process. 

If you currently have a code compliance complaint please see the link below to our complaint form. Each complaint will be processed and assessed for appropriate action. We ask the citizens to continue to be patient while we work to build this valuable program and provide much needed enforcement services to Jefferson County.
