Code Administration

The Code Administration Department of the City of Lebanon holds the crucial responsibility of administering and enforcing codes established by the Lebanon City Council. These codes serve to regulate the construction, use, and occupancy of buildings and structures within the city. To ensure compliance with these codes and to guarantee the safety of occupants, the department conducts inspections on both residential and commercial properties. Our team consists of ICC certified inspectors who provide valuable expertise during these inspections.

The issuance of permits falls under the jurisdiction of the Code Administration Department. This includes a wide range of permits such as building, remodeling, electric, water, sewer, fence, pool, accessory building, and many others. Our department facilitates the process of obtaining these permits, ensuring that all necessary requirements are met.

In addition to code administration and permit issuance, our department oversees various ordinances related to zoning, building regulations, access management, and subdivision. The Zoning and Planning Commission, as well as the Board of Adjustments, collaborate with us in the administration of these ordinances, contributing to responsible urban planning and development.

The Code Administration Department is also responsible for enforcing nuisance ordinances that address issues such as tall grass, trash, unlicensed vehicles, and other nuisances that may impact the quality of life in our community. By upholding these ordinances, we strive to maintain a clean and safe environment for all residents.

Through diligent code administration, thorough inspections, permit issuance, collaboration with boards, and enforcement of ordinances, the Code Administration Department plays a pivotal role in promoting compliance, safety, and the overall well-being of our city.
