Code Enforcement


The primary functions of the Code Enforcement Department are to:

  • Educate the public in code issues
  • Work with the citizens of our community

We are committed to professional Code Enforcement that is responsive to our citizens. In addition, officers proactively enforce regulations as their case load allows. More information on each of these violation types can by located by referring to the Callaway Code of Ordinances.


The Code Enforcement Department’s workload is principally complaint-generated. The department receives a substantial number of complaints each year concerning alleged violations of the City Code of Laws and Ordinances. Each one is investigated to determine whether a violation exists.
