Code Compliance


Here at Code Compliance we like to work with other departments and the Garland Community.  Here is a message from our friends at Environmental Waste Services.


The Code Compliance Department’s mission is to enforce State legislation and City ordinances that involve residential and commercial properties in order to ensure healthy, vital communities. The department attempts to prevent and eliminate aesthetic problems and ensure that residents have the opportunity to live in a clean, safe, and healthy community. The department also helps to maintain property values and a strong City tax base. This is accomplished by inspecting residential and commercial properties to ensure proper maintenance and compliance with minimum standards.

Code Compliance consists of three divisions:

  • Neighborhood Standards – responsible for inspections within residential areas and;

  • Housing Standards – responsible for inspections of single family, multi-family and hotel/motel properties and;

  • Commercial Standards – responsible for inspections of exterior commercial properties.
