The main objective of a code enforcement officer is to help maintain the beauty and health of the city. This is done by enforcing city ordinances.   An ordinance has to be read three times and approved by the city council to become a law. Once this is done any police officer or code officer can enforce it. The most common codes enforced are, Watering restrictions, Weed growth, Snow removal, Abandoned vehicles, Sight triangle, Filthy premise, Tree growth over signs and in alleys and animal ordinances.

     All city ordinances are available on line, city hall or the police department. Complaints can be called into police dispatch at 532-7001. When a complaint is received it will be followed up on as soon as possible. Although the officers patrol the city, problem areas can be addressed more quickly when someone calls in a violation and although you will be asked your name it is not given to the property owners of the violation.

Let’s work together to keep Torrington a clean and safe place to live.
