Reminder from the Code Enforcement Department:
The Code Enforcement Department reminds all property (residential, non-residential, and vacant) owners and occupants that the Douglas County Litter Ordinance requires all areas of the properties to be kept free of litter and debris. In the instances of commercial and non-residential properties, this includes parking lot areas with discarded bottles, cans, cigarette butts, cups and other instances and forms of litter. The Code Enforcement does recommend a daily inspection of the property by all responsible parties in the clearing and removing of litter to possibly avoid the issuance of citations by the Code Enforcement Department.
All properties located in Unincorporated Douglas County are required to be in compliance with the codes contained in the Douglas County Unified Development Code, the Douglas County Code of Ordinances, and the International Property Maintenance Code. The Code Enforcement Department ensures properties are in compliance with these codes, and is responsible for issuing citations and court summonses for violations.
The Code Enforcement Department also removes illegal signage in unincorporated Douglas County rights-of-way, and the Chief Code Enforcement Officer also issues all required sign permits for signs in unincorporated Douglas County.
