The objective of code enforcement is to obtain voluntary compliance. Prosecuting a code violation is the least efficient way to guarantee an improved community. Therefore, education and guidance are the primary services rendered by a Code Enforcement Officer.
Code Enforcement also ensures:
- Residential and business properties are properly maintained,
- Trash and debris are disposed of,
- Inoperative / junk vehicles are not illegally stored, and
- Signs are not illegally posted.
Am I in the City?
Many properties having a Snellville mailing address may not necessarily be located within the City of Snellville municipal boundaries as U.S. Postal boundaries are not the same. If you are not certain the address containing the violation is located in the Snellville city limits, please use the 'Am I in the City?' address lookup tool to know for sure.
