The purpose of the Code Enforcement Division is to promote, protect
and improve the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Marion
County through an effective code enforcement program. The Department has
authority throughout the unincorporated area of the County. Please note
Code Enforcement does not handle complaints for property or situations
inside any city limits. Contact each city directly for more
The Department's workload is principally complaint generated. The
Department receives a substantial number of complaints each year
concerning alleged violations of the County's various regulations. Each
one is investigated to determine whether a violation exists.
The primary functions of the Code Enforcement Department are to educate
the public in code issues and to work with the citizens to achieve code
compliance. The Department promotes voluntary compliance by establishing
partnerships with citizens, community groups and other agencies. We are
committed to professional code enforcement that is responsive to our
citizens. In addition, officers proactively enforce regulations as their
case load allows. Officers also work on weekends.
We appreciate your feedback on our customer service.
