The Planning and Zoning Department is responsible for enforcement of the City’s zoning code relative to  property maintenance violations.  Property maintenance issues include but are not limited to:  tall grass & weeds, debris, junk vehicles, sidewalk issues, health safety issues, sanitation,  etc.  The Zoning Department appreciates citizen engagement relative to code enforcement efforts which benefit all in our community.  

When contacting the city  regarding a suspected violation, you will need to provide the  address of the property  and a brief description of the issue(s).  You can report to us in one of the  following ways:

  •  Citizen Portal  for online reporting. You will enter the information/inquiring and your report will be directed to us for follow up.
  • Email us at: 
  • Call us at 419-433-5000 ext. 1303.

Upon reciept of your inquiry, the Zoning Department will open a report, review and investigate your inquiry.  Should the Zoning Inspector  determine that a code violation exists, the property owner will be contacted with notice of corrective action to be taken within the specified time frame pursuant to the code.
