Code Enforcement Officers promote, protect and improve the health, safety and welfare of the visitors, citizens and properties of the City of Calexico through an effective code enforcement program. Staff enforcement workload is generated by citizen complaints as well as on-site actions that are initiated whenever Code Enforcement Officers observe unsafe, unhealthy or particularly unsightly conditions. Code Enforcement personnel also enforce the sign code, construction codes, business license codes, abandoned and inoperative vehicle codes and abate property nuisances.
The primary function of the Code Enforcement Officers is to educate the public on code issues and work with citizens, business owners and other community stakeholders to achieve voluntary compliance. Staff seeks voluntary compliance by establishing a positive relationship with residents and property owners, encouraging them to maintain their properties and to keep unsightly conditions from occurring. Calexico Code Enforcement Officers are committed to responsive and professional interaction with the public with the goal of promoting an attractive community, improving the living conditions for everyone and protecting the health, safety and welfare of the City of Calexico.
