Keeping Dickinson Safe and Beautiful

City Hall

Mission Statement:

Code Enforcement strives to educate, promote, and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment throughout the city. Our goal is to help maintain and improve the quality of our community by administering fair and unbiased enforcement of State laws and local ordinances to correct violations and reduce hazards that create damage and adversely affect the quality of life of residents in the affected areas of the city. 

What We Do

We work with residents, businesses, neighborhood associations, public services agencies, and other City departments to:

  • Facilitate voluntary compliance with city ordinances and codes.
  • Bring properties into compliance through abatement and fines.
  • Empower community self-help programs.
  • Develop public outreach programs.
  • Establish community priorities for enforcement programs.
