Code Enforcement

Service

The Code Enforcement office was established to work with residents and businesses to ensure the City of Pasco is a clean, safe and healthy place to live and work. The Pasco City Council empowered the code enforcement officers to enforce the Pasco Municipal Code (PMC) through inspections and notices to those in violation.

Code enforcement officers investigate citizen complaints and identify others through proactive inspections. Some of the most common code violations pertain to overgrown weeds, accumulations of waste or garbage materials, blowing dust, obstructions to public rights-of-way, potential fire hazards, zoning code and sign code requirements, business license requirements and portions of the noise ordinance.

The Code Enforcement Board is another entity made up of community members that review and hear reports of city code violations and make decisions based on the relevant code. The different code violations they might hear include: Property Maintenance and Nuisances, Dust Control, Noise Levels, Residential Rentals, Business Licensing, City Water and Sewer, and Animal Licensing. All of which, when resolved contribute to improved property appearance, community pride and property values.

If you would like to submit a suspected code violation, use the online portal Report a Code Violation in the side menu to do so. You may also contact the City of Pasco Code Enforcement Division at 509-543-5743 or email the Code Office for further information.
