City of Oxford Code Enforcement Complaint

Complainant properties should be free of any code violations especially if the violation property being reported is immediately adjacent to your own.  If you are unsure if you have any violations on your property; contact Code Enforcement for a free site inspection. Some violations depending on the complexity of the issues involved may take weeks to several years to complete. Please Note:  Your testimony may be required in court to successfully prosecute the violator.  All complaint forms submitted are public information.  Your contact information may be shared with the public including the owners/residents against which a complaint is filed, if such a request for information is made to the City. The complainant certifies that he/she has personal knowledge of the facts stated in this Complaint.

Our purpose is not only to safeguard life, health, and property, and to promote the public welfare, but also through dialogue and enforcement to make Oxford a better place to reside and to locate your business.
