Code Enforcement


The Department of Public Works and Planning is responsible for the enforcement of County and State Ordinances and codes relating to parking, signs, weed abatement, health and housing codes.
One of the main goals of the Code Enforcement program is to bring to the attention of residential and business owners any existing ordinance or code violation which could have a negative impact on their neighborhood.  Many such violations are referred to as "public nuisances." Through voluntary compliance, cooperation, and a spirit of personal responsibility for the well-being of our community, conditions which create these violations can be eliminated and the program will succeed in making the County of Fresno an even better place to live.

Code Enforcement personnel can be made available to attend neighborhood and organizational meetings to explain the program and assist citizens with improving their neighborhoods.
