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. 

 

In light of the on-ongoing changes to the situation regarding the spread of COVID-19 in the region, Fountain Neighborhood Services Code Compliance Division will be implementing the following procedures effective immediately through the end of the month.

  • Code Compliance Officers will be observing “social distancing” practices whenever possible by limiting citizen contact to phone call, e-mail, and use of the on-line “virtual City Hall” system.  This system may be accessed by visiting our website and clicking on the MY FOUNTAIN logo at top of the homepage.
  • Response to Citizens’ complaints received during this time period will be based on effect to the safety, health, and welfare to citizens and neighborhood.
  • Code Compliance Officers will grant extensions for compliance as appropriate.
  • Citizens with an upcoming court appearance should contact Fountain Municipal Court at (719) 322-2045 for possible changes to their court date.
  • Code Compliance Division main phone line is (719) 322-2032 and messages are checked daily.
