Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement provides enforcement for all nuisance complaints and can investigate and prosecute violations dealing with the City of Anniston Codes that govern: illegal dumping, signage, nuisances such as junk vehicles and overgrown lots, housing standards, trash cans, residential and commercial zoning.

The Code Enforcement Officer is responsible for the enforcement of municipal and technical codes. Abandoned/disabled vehicles, lot cleaning, tractor-trailer parking, signs on the right-of-way, construction projects without a permit, demolitions of substandard and/or dangerous structures are just some of the items handled by the Code Enforcement Department.

The mission of the Code Enforcement Department is to enhance the quality of life and economy of Anniston by enforcing regulations that preserve and protect neighborhoods. The department promotes voluntary compliance by establishing partnerships with citizens, community groups, and other agencies. Part of that establishment comes in the form of community meetings where citizens are educated about the aforementioned code requirements.
