Code Enforcement

Safety & Quality of Life In Sandy

Mission Statement - To promote and maintain a safe, desirable living and working environment in Sandy. To preserve and improve the quality of our community by administering a fair and unbiased compliance program to correct issues of municipals codes and land use requirements.

The Sandy City Code Enforcement department was formed in 1990, as a part of the Community Development Department. Our code officers are charged with enforcing Sandy City's Land Development code and other portions of municipal code (such as weeds, rubbish and junk).

Our Code Enforcement team has four (4) full-time officers and one (1) technician. Each officer is assigned a specific area, in order to develop a relationship with area residents and businesses. For information on how to contact your code officer, please click here. The Sandy City Council has adopted codes including the Sandy City Neighborhood Preservation Plan specifically designed to uphold a clean and maintained environment for our community.

  • Property maintenance (not watering landscape, not maintaining growth, etc.)
  • Storage of rubbish, trash and debris
  • Parking any vehicle on a non-solid surface
  • Overgrown weeds and lawn - cannot be greater than 6"

Be A Good Neighbor & City Partner!

You can help make Sandy a better place to live, work and play by making yourself familiar with City standards. When contacting Code Enforcement, please be as detailed as possible, including the violation address, nature of the issue, and your contact information (all complaints are strictly confidential). An initial site inspection is completed to determine what codes may be in violation. If in violation, the officer will issue a notice of violation. If the property continues to be in violation, the owner may be subject to a citation. (Information regarding an open case may be obtained by contacting the officer assigned to the case).
