Code Enforcement

Goals

Code Enforcement is an investment that pays off for a city and its citizens by helping to keep it vital. The enforcement of property maintenance and nuisance codes establishes a minimum standard for maintaining properties in Excelsior.

The primary goal is to obtain voluntary compliance with the provisions of the City Code by all citizens of Excelsior. By doing this, we will maintain a high quality of life in our community, contribute to the improvement and stabilization of our neighborhoods, protect the property values, and help promote a healthy and safe environment.

Complaints

Many people are not exactly sure what to do when they have a complaint regarding a possible violation. The first thing you must do is talk with your neighbor or the property owner. Politely explain the situation and ask for their cooperation in resolving the problem. If your "good neighbor" effort fails, please contact the city at (952) 653-3674.
