Neighborhood Services - Code Compliance Division


The mission of Neighborhood Services Code Compliance Division is to provide fair and comprehensive enforcement of City Codes, which includes the regulation of junk, debris, trash, nuisance, weeds, zoning, and rental/leased property maintenance. 

Code Compliance plays an important role in preserving the attractive appearance of neighborhoods in the City of Fountain. Fountain's Code Compliance Officers work closely within the community to protect public health, safety and welfare through the comprehensive and equitable enforcement of City Ordinances, also known as City Codes, related to nuisance and land use violations. Officers enhance and safeguard the quality of life in our community through education, guidance, and special projects.  

The goal of Code Compliance Officers is first to achieve voluntary compliance with our City Codes by the property owner and secondarily through code enforcement procedures utilizing Notices of Violation, Municipal Court, and the Abatement Process. 

Neighborhood Services Officers participated with other City employees in donning red noses in support of ending child poverty.   Red Nose Day's 2017 campaign raised over $35 million. People wanting to get in on the fun for 2018 and hold Red Nose Day fundraisers at school, at work or in their communities can find more information at


E-Recycling Saturday, June 2nd, 9am-12noon

Our Electronics Recycling Event held June 2nd  was a great success!  Residents were lined up an hour early waiting to drop off their old TVs, computers, and other electronics.  We collected a few thousand pounds of electronics in a short amount of time.  We hope to offer another such event in the fall.
