Code Enforcement

If you believe you have a code enforcement issue, such as junk vehicles and/or abandoned cars on private property or other nuisance issues as defined in UMPC 9.35, call 253.460.2548. For junk vehicles in the City Right-of-Way contact the Police Department at 253.798.4058. 
 
Barking dogs are not a code issue, please see the Animal Control section for how to report this. 
 
Residents may also complete the code enforcement complaint form. In most cases this form must be completed prior to investigation. Be sure to leave contact information for follow-up.
 
Please note that the City addresses code enforcement issues depending on life, health and safety concerns and staffing availability.
