The City Council has adopted City Codes (laws) to establish standards to address blight and nuisances, and to safeguard and protect the environment for all residents. The City of American Canyon does this by working in partnership with members of the community.

The goal of the Code Enforcement Division is to promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment. The Code Enforcement Officer strives to maintain and improve the quality of the community by administering a fair and unbiased enforcement program to correct violations. The Code Enforcement Officer is committed to working with residents and businesses in a manner that is both professional and most effective. 

Code Enforcement staff respond to complaints regarding Municipal Code violations which affect the safety, quality of life, and appearance of the City. We promote Neighborhood Preservation by collaborating with other departments and agencies, and working with residents to develop solutions to improve the quality of our community.
