It is not uncommon for a Code Enforcement interaction to be a resident’s first association with the County. Counties adopt ordinances, rules and regulations that take into consideration the safety and well-being of the public. Code Enforcement Officers support and enhance quality of life, while working to keep homes and properties from becoming “eyesores”. Every community struggles with blight, trash, inoperable vehicles, etc., making Code Enforcement even more necessary to protect your property value.
The professionalism and approach of the Code Enforcement Officer has the potential to shape the community notion of local government and municipal experience. Building relationships and knowledge of the community is integral to a proactive and professional Code Enforcement approach. Through responsible ownership of properties and working together blight can be prevented in our neighborhoods.
It is our goal to make Washington County an attraction for future growth and keep our rural heritage alive and well recognized by those who visit or live in this great County.
