The Codes Department is responsible for ensuring quality construction practices in the private sector. In order to accomplish this goal, building plans are reviewed and construction activity is inspected. In addition, the department is responsible for enforcement of the City's Zoning Ordinances and for coordinating rezoning changes. Condemnation and demolition of properties is the responsibility of this department, as well as property maintenance inspections for the City. This includes addressing weeds, trash, unlicensed vehicles and nuisance issues within the city limits. The department also handles rental housing and property complaints, management and enforcement of the sanitary waste disposal ordinance, water and sewer connection inspections, flood plain management, subdivision platting, and subdivision plan reviews.
The Codes & Planning Director is the staff representative for the Planning & Zoning Commission, the Board of Adjustment, the Kirksville Historic Preservation Commission, and the Geographic Information Systems Consortium.
