Code and ordinance enforcement in the City of Monroeville is the component of city services that deals with concerns and Compliance complaints related to the city’s codes and ordinances.
Concerns and complaints involving city codes and ordinances are handled by the city’s compliance officer and building official.
Once a code or ordinance violation is observed by the compliance officer/building official, or brought to his attention by a concerned citizen, the responsible party is contacted by phone, letter, notice, or in person and advised of the violation found.
In many cases, the responsible party is not aware that they are in violation of a particular code or ordinance until it is brought to their attention. It is the city’s desire to work with the responsible party to correct the violation. A reasonable time frame is set in which corrections are to be made.
The city is happy to work with individuals who are willing to help themselves and citizens who show good faith in trying to resolve the problem.
