Neighborhood Services - Code Compliance Division

WELCOME TO FOUNTAIN NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICES


The mission of Neighborhood Services Code Compliance Division is to provide fair and comprehensive enforcement of City Codes, which includes the regulation of junk, debris, trash, nuisance, weeds, zoning, and rental/leased property maintenance. 

Violation Free Property
Code Compliance plays an important role
in preserving the attractive appearance of neighborhoods in the City of 
Fountain. Fountain's Code Compliance Officers work closely within the community to protect public health, safety, and welfare through the comprehensive and equitable enforcement of City Ordinances, also  known as City Codes, related to nuisance and land use violations. Officers enhance and safeguard the quality of life in our community through education, guidance, and special projects.  

Violation Free PropertyThe goal of Code Compliance Officers is first to achieve voluntary compliance with  our City Codes by the property owner, and  secondarily through code enforcement  procedures by utilizing Notices of Violation,  Municipal Court, and the Abatement  Process.
