What is Not a Code Violation?
Your valuable tax dollars are at work, and we want to expend our resources appropriately and efficiently. There are some neighborhood problems that do not fall under our jurisdiction.  In general, we can act on behalf of the public at large, but we cannot take action on behalf of one citizen against another. The City does not handle neighbor disputes or civil problems that do not violate public law.

Often a neighbor's tree or other plantings may drop leaves or debris in your yard, or may cause damage to a fence or other structure.  These conditions are private matters between the two property owners, and the City has no jurisdiction.
