The Codes Enforcement program is responsible for enforcing the Municipal Code and works to improve the quality of life through informational brochures and public events.
Recently, the program has taken on a new strategy for cleaning up blighted areas within the city. The Mayor and City Council support assistance to citizens in need of cleaning up their neighborhoods as part of Morristown’s “Clean & Green” program. Employees from various City department assist with the effort by participating in neighborhood assessments. Afterwards, a public meeting is held within the targeted neighborhood. City staff informs the residents of infractions in the neighborhood and advises them of the assistance the city is willing to provide. The city provides assistance that includes removing trash and debris to installing house numbers on each home.
