The Division of Code Enforcement provides regular inspections throughout the township to ensure compliance with borough ordinances and building Codes. Typically, the official will look for property maintenance violations and properties in an unsafe condition or state of disrepair. The code official can respond to complaints and inquiries from residents about conditions that may not conform to ordinance standards. Year-round and seasonal housing is inspected to ensure safe and habitable conditions exist in dwellings that are rented rather than owner-occupied. The Code Enforcement Official is there to protect all residents and businesses from unsafe and unsightly conditions in order to make the borough a better place to live.
