Tall Weeds Complaint

Trash Complaint

The Code Enforcement Division is responsible for addressing nuisance and property standard violations to provide a safe and healthy environment for the community. These violations include high weeds and grass, trash and debris, illegal dumping and illegal home occupations. The main goal of this enforcement is to resolve violations to reduce neighborhood deterioration and sustain property values. Through the efforts of our Environmental Inspector, the City of Winfield hopes to gain willing compliance of the Winfield Municipal Code, encourage citizen participation and stimulate cooperation towards maintaining their property.

It is unlawful for any person to cause, keep, or permit any nuisance within the city. A nuisance is defined as any act, omission, or condition which endangers life, health, or property, or is offensive to the senses, or interferes with the comfortable enjoyment of life or property. This includes but not be limited to the following:

  • Accumulation of garbage, rubbish, junk or other materials which create an unsightly appearance.
  • Dense smoke, noxious fumes, gas, or cinders in unreasonable quantities.
  • Noxious weeds and rank growth.
  • Loud noises
  • Inoperable Vehicles

Nuisances may be reported to Community Development, by using the Report a Concern online notification, or calling (620) 221-5520, during regular business hours (8-5 Monday through Friday).
