Code Enforcement focuses on compliance with all city codes and ordinances that may affect the City's quality of life, its aesthetics and the welfare of its citizens. They address a wide range of issues that affect the environment, health, safety, property values and general well-being of Johns Creek. Preservation and improvement are recognized by government leaders as necessary to prevent the deterioration of our surroundings and enhance the quality of life.
The objective of code enforcement is to obtain voluntary compliance. Prosecuting a code violation is the least efficient way to guarantee an improved community. Therefore, education and guidance are the primary services rendered by a Code Enforcement Officer.
Code Enforcement also ensures:
- residential and business properties are properly maintained,
- trash and debris are disposed of,
- inoperative / junk vehicles are not illegally stored, and
- signs are not illegally posted.
