Sandy City Code Enforcement officers are charged with enforcing Sandy City's Land Development code and portions of the 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 a map of of each Code Enforcement officers assigned area 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.
