The Code Enforcement Division’s primary goal is keeping Woodbury a healthy, safe, and beautiful place to live. Code Enforcement staff is responsible for the implementation of many sections of the city’s code of ordinances. Ordinances are local laws which exist to promote our community standards, safeguard the quality of life for our residents, and protect housing investments for years to come.

The code of ordinances governs many things, including, but not limited to, property maintenance, nuisances, signage, and zoning. Code Enforcement staff responds to inquiries and complaints regarding code issues. If a violation of the code is found to exist, typically a letter will be sent which outlines the steps that need to be taken to correct the violation.
In many instances, residents are simply unaware of the Code and correct the situation immediately. In the event the correction is not made in a reasonable amount of time, the code enforcement officer may issue an administrative citation to the violator. Residents may appeal the citation through the administrative hearing process.
