Code Compliance

The Code Compliance Division is responsible for addressing nuisance and property standard violations to ensure a safe and healthy environment for the community. These violations include high weeds and grass, trash and debris, and illegal dumping. The main goal is not to issue citations but to educate and gain compliance with city codes for better health, welfare, and harmony within the community.
Code Compliance officers:
  • Investigate complaints concerning:
    • Accumulation of trash and debris
    • Dangerous buildings
    • Excessively high grass and weeds
    • Illegal dumping
    • Non-operational vehicles
    • Substandard structures
    • Various other general nuisance-related violations
  • Prepare detailed reports and correspondence related to code enforcement inspections, violations, and other activities
  • Prepare required documentation for legal actions
  • Take photographs of and gather all pertinent facts associated with possible code violations

Reporting Violations 
Often the best way to solve a problem is to become a part of the solution. You can help make Saginaw a cleaner, safer community by keeping your property clean and in compliance with city ordinances. Most people want to comply with the laws of the community where they live, but some are not aware of city ordinances. Sometimes people violate city codes because they don’t realize that what they are doing is unacceptable. 
Reporting code violations is important to the overall quality of life in our community and helps our Code Compliance Officers do a better job.
