Code Enforcement Inspections

The City of Fairlawn regulates the condition and maintenance of all property, buildings, and structures by the adoption of the International Property Maintenance Code, Zoning Code and various nuisance codes such as tall grass/weeds and junk motor vehicles.

In order to effectively enforce the Codes, Code Inspections are performed based upon complaints received, results of the Neighborhood Inspection Program or violations viewed in the field by inspectors. Many times code violations can be corrected after initial contact with the responsible parties but occasionally many inspections are required before compliance is achieved.
