Our Code Enforcement Division works with residents and property owners to maintain and improve property aesthetics, property values and community appearance.

Code Enforcement officers partner with other City departments to effectively enforce housing, building, fire and life safety codes to maintain life safety standards in Shelton. 

Common code enforcement issues we see include:
  • Dangerous structures
  • Accumulation of litter or debris
  • Used, damaged, or discarded lumber, furniture, junk, or trash visible from public view
  • Detrimental maintenance of property (including tall grass)
  • Inoperable and/or junk vehicles parked on front, side, and rear yards
  • Maintenance of property as to cause a public nuisance
  • Excessive junk or debris accumulation in public view
You can read more about code enforcement in the Shelton Municipal Code.
