Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Department works in partnership with the citizens of Dunsmuir to promote a safe and desirable living and working environment. The Code Enforcement Division staff is currently comprised of one (1) Code Enforcement Officer. That person enforces permitting requirements regarding building and zoning matters as well as enforces nuisance violations. Since the goal of Code Enforcement is to enhance the quality of life, Code Enforcement Division staff work with property owners and business owners towards reasonable and timely compliance of code violations, thus increasing neighborhood livability and improving property values.

Code Enforcement Officer Ryan Leahy can be reached at cso@ci.dunsmuir.ca.usor by calling City Hall at 530-235-4822.

The Code Enforcement Process

When a complaint is received, or staff suspects a violation, the following steps are undertaken to have the violation abated:

  • An inspection is scheduled to determine if the complaint has merit. If it does not, the case is closed.
  • If the complaint has merit, a letter explaining the violations is mailed to the property owner. It provides  direction and timelines to abate the violations.
