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. 


We accept certain paper, plastic, cardboard, and metal.  Fountain Recycling Center 301 E Iowa Ave.

The Recycling Center saw its highest customer count in January with over 700 visitors!  On some days we had vehicles lined up, the drivers patiently waiting their turn to drop off various items.  Our volunteers do a wonderful job of assisting customers with unloading and sorting of items.  Drop in when you get a chance and don’t forget your paper, plastic, and metal recyclables!  Volunteers needed, wanted, and appreciated!


Keep America Beautiful
Neighborhood Services is proud to be included with the Great America Clean-up Pikes Partners .  We had a great turn-out of volunteers last year when we cleaned-up a stretch along Fountain Creek.  Everyone worked hard and within a very short time we had collected enough junk and trash to fill 3 pick-up trucks! 
3 Pick-up loads of junk and trash!
We welcome more volunteers and hope you join us this year for our 2018 Great America Clean-up local event scheduled for Saturday, April 21st from 9am to 12noon.   For more information and to register go to  or call Juan Flores at 719-393-4919.
