County Departments: What's Open/Closed/Modified
Sign up for Code Enforcement updates
Our Mission is to promote and maintain a high quality of life where people live and work.
Code Enforcement investigates violations of housing, zoning and vehicle abatement laws in the unincorporated Sacramento County. We work to achieve voluntary compliance through notification and education. When necessary, we use legal procedures including boarding structures, removing junk and rubbish and junk vehicles, civil citations, criminal citations and demolition of dangerous buildings. Our goal is to maintain and improve property values and the quality of life for residents, visitors and business owners.
