Code Compliance

The City's Code Compliance Program is one mechanism by which the City of Saratoga is able to maintain standards of health, safety, and high quality of life.

The Code Compliance Program operates on a complaint basis, meaning that in most cases, a complaint must be filed before City staff investigates complaints. The City will then respond to complaints of code violations and work with residents to achieve voluntary compliance before official action is taken.

Anonymous complaints are not accepted. The City recognizes that some complainants may not want their names disclosed for fear of retaliation, but the City makes no assurances that the identity of the complaining party will remain confidential.
