Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement works to identify violations of Edmond’s municipal ordinance and state laws within the Edmond City Limits. We seek voluntary compliance from citizens to help maintain the quality of the community. Once a code violation is identified, the responsible party is notified to take corrective action.

In addition to working health, safety, and welfare ordinance violations, Code Enforcement also monitors oil wells, and pipelines, and administers a Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) program for commercial uses. Inspections are made to insure municipal ordinances and state laws are adhered to.
