Code Enforcement

What is Code Enforcement?
Code Enforcement is city employees working with residents, neighborhood associations, public service agencies and other city departments to facilitate voluntary compliance with city laws and codes.

Our Goal 
The goal of Code Enforcement is to promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment. The City of Sanford works in partnership with City residents and business owners to educate and  increase public awareness of the City's Municipal Ordinances and adopted Codes, and to facilitate the correction of said code violations as they arise.

How Do We Serve You?
Code Enforcement conducts inspections of properties throughout the city to determine compliance with code requirements and, when necessary, notifies owners of observed ordinance violations and methods by which to correct those violations. Code compliance is achieved through a combination of education, resource and assistance referral and enforcement. The Code Enforcement Office also performs plan review functions for building permit applications and answers questions concerning zoning and land-use matters.

Please remember all inspections require a MINIMUM of a 24 hour notice.
