The Code Enforcement Inspector is responsible for addressing on-property nuisance violations to provide a safe and healthy environment for the community. These violations include weeds and grass in excess of 12 inches, accumulations of trash and debris, illegal dumping, inoperable vehicles, dead, damaged or overgrown trees. The main goal of this enforcement is to resolve violations to reduce neighborhood deterioration and sustain property values. Through the efforts of our Code Enforcement 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.
