Housing Code and Rodent Control inspectors enforce State Statutes and Municipal Ordinances that protect the public health, safety and welfare in all three-family or more, and mixed use residential/ commercial structures; as well as one and two-family dwellings that are not occupied by the property owner. The general maintenance of all aspects of a building are enforced for example lighting, ventilation, occupancy density, plumbing fixtures, supply and waste lines, heat and hot water, sanitation, rodent control measures, etc. Our main goal is to obtain compliance and ensure the safety of the public.
