Code Enforcement

Enforcement of the development regulations contained in the Unified Development Code (UDC), Title 18 of the Jefferson County Code (JCC), is administered under JCC Chapter 18.50.

Reporting Violations

To report a suspected code violation, complete an online Complaint Form.


Due to the still-struggling economy, DCD does not have the funding to support a code enforcement officer. At present, our policy is to have available staff do a brief initial evaluation of potential violations and seek voluntary compliance if violations are found.

In some situations, when voluntary compliance is ineffective, Code Enforcement may involve the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and/or the Prosecuting Attorney's Office.
