CODE ENFORCEMENT DIVISION



 

The Code Enforcement Division is responsible for helping to maintain the quality of life in Casper by addressing nuisance violations that pertain to weeds, litter, junk, junk vehicles, dangerous buildings, recreational vehicle parking, etc.  Code Enforcement also enforces zoning regulations, fencing, signage, and setback regulations as well as other issues related to building permits, permitted uses, etc.

Property maintenance regulations are an integral tool for enforcing and encouraging the maintenance and upkeep of local properties.  The regulations place the responsibility for maintenance and upkeep primarily upon the property owner and/or tenant.  Property owners and/or tenants (or those in charge of a property), that violate municipal ordinances, are notified to correct the violation and comply with City ordinances.  Most individuals, once notified of a violation, are willing to comply.  However, for those individuals that do not comply, the violation may be referred to the Municipal Court for further action.

PRESS RELEASE - Those Darn Weeds! 

The hot and windy days of July and August brings forth fun in the sun!  However, it also brings forth tall weeds, grass, dandelions, and noxious vegetation that can become a fire hazard.  Therefore, the City of Casper would like to remind property owners/tenants (commercial and residential) that your property, which includes the abutting alleys and sidewalk/parkway areas, must be maintained free of tall weeds, grass, dandelions, and other noxious vegetation that are in excess of 8 inches in height.  As per City ordinance, owners/tenants will be notified only one time in any calendar year of a weed violation which has to be removed within ten days of receipt of notification.  If the violation is not removed or other arrangements made, the City can either mow the property and assess the costs to the property owner/tenant, or file a complaint through Municipal Court for noncompliance of the City ordinance. 

So, let’s all pitch in to keep our properties free and clear of tall weeds, grass, dandelions, and noxious vegetation.  A little effort goes a long way towards ensuring that our neighborhoods are a cleaner and safer place to live, work, and play.  If you have any questions, or would like to report a “weed” violation, contact the Code Enforcement Department at 235-8254 or visit our website at www.casperwy.gov.
