Code Compliance

The Code Compliance Division is charged with enforcement of provisions of the Kings County Zoning, Building, Nuisance, Surface Mining and Abandoned Vehicle Ordinances. Enforcement generally follows a complaint and ordinarily involves an inspection followed by a warning. Following warnings, enforcement options include citations to court, administrative monetary penalties and physical abatement or removal of the problem. The division abates and removes 100-200 derelict or abandoned vehicles and up to 10 substandard or dangerous buildings per year and resolves several hundred complaints of zoning or nuisance violations.

In addition to enforcement activities, the Code Compliance Division provides field inspection services to the Planning Agency. Physical inspections are conducted on every site proposed for new amended zoning permits, all dairies and all surface mining operations. The Code Compliance Division also manages the Monitoring Program for the Dairy Element of the Kings County General Plan.

Should you have any questions concerning Code Compliance please call 559-852-2670
