Yes! Code enforcement complaints can be made anonymously; however, we will not be able to get back with you if we need any additional information regarding the specifics of the complaint or let you know if the issue is in fact not an ordinance violation.
No! Ordinances are applicable to the entire property. For instance, a violation of high grass and weeds is not simply for the front yard -- it includes the front, sides, and rear. The codes are intended to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens and visitors of the City -- they are not purely for aesthetic purposes.
No. No automobile may be parked in the front yard.
