Crawfordsville Code Enforcement Officer

The goal of the Crawfordsville Code Enforcement Officer is to bring to the attention of residential and business owners' existing code violations that can have a negative impact on the community.  Many such code violations are referred to as public nuisances.  Through voluntary compliance, cooperation and a spirit of personal responsibility for the well-being of the community, conditions that create code violations can be eliminated.  These acts will make the City of Crawfordsville a better place to live.  The citizens of the City of Crawfordsville owe it to themselves and their neighbors to maintain their homes and businesses in a manner which has a positive effect on the overall appearance of the town. 


Upon receiving a complaint, a Code Enforcement Officer will inspect the site to confirm the alleged violations.  The Officer will then contact the property owner to explain the violation and suggest solutions.  The property owner is then given a specific amount of time to rectify the problem.  While most property owners comply after the first notification, those who do not receive additional notices or citations.  All issues are addressed in a confidential, friendly and understanding manner.
