Our code enforcement procedures are complaint-driven. When we receive a complaint from a citizen about a possible violation, we investigate the situation and issue a notice if a violation is present. Our code enforcement staff does not patrol the community on a regular basis because of staff time constraints. If you believe there are additional violations that should be corrected, please file a complaint with the City and we will investigate.
Call the City to discuss your concerns at 360-887-3557. If you believe the notice was issued in error or that you are not in violation of the regulations, you may appeal the determination. If you are unsure how to correct the problem, please contact us and we will help connect you with the right information and resources. Our primary goal with code enforcement is to correct the violation rather that punish the violator.
