Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement
The primary responsibility of the Code Enforcement Department is the enforcement of the City Code of Ordinances through the Code Enforcement Officer. This person's primary responsibility is ensuring that all residential and commercial properties are in compliance with the City's exterior property maintenance, nuisance, sign, and all other City Codes. 

This is done through interpersonal contact, letters, telephone calls, and citations if necessary. Code Enforcement also works with the Building Department on the enforcement of various state, federal and international codes.

What is a Code Violation?

A code violation is anything that contradicts a city ordinance that is either found in the municipal code or the zoning ordinance. Code violations signify that a correction is needed.  If you are unsure if the issue you are concerned about is a code violation, it never hurts to ask. Call Code Enforcement, if you have any questions at 248-557-2600 ext. 247. Also, there are resources available online. Our municipal code and zoning ordinance are the essential documents which outline the standards and rules in the community and can be found at www.lathrupvillage.org.

Common code violations include:

  •  Lack of property maintenance, such as peeling paint, broken windows, or other damage or deterioration on a structure.
  •  Tall grass, weeds, and improperly stored yard waste.
  •  Improperly stored vehicles, inoperable vehicles, or other objects stored in plain view.
  •  Trash containers left out in public view.

Enforcement is important:

Code enforcement officers are essential in enhancing the quality of life by making sure issues are managed for the safety and healthy living of Lathrup Village residents. Well maintained neighborhoods and business corridors preserve property values and are a source of community pride. Code violations that are not addressed can damage a community’s safety, beauty, and vitality. The city is committed to addressing code violations as they become aware of them, but the response can be slow if issues are not being reported. The city needs help from residents, as the eyes and ears of the community, to report code violations as they develop.
