Code Compliance - Preserve and enhance the livability of Salem neighborhoods through the enforcement of nuisance, housing, and property maintenance codes.

Multi-Family Program - Inspect properties requiring licensing, and insure comprehensive safety for the occupants of those buildings by the application of building, fire, and housing codes.



We help maintain and improve the quality of our community by administering a fair and unbiased enforcement program to correct violations of municipal codes and land use requirements.

Funding for this program has been reduced in the City's current budget.  Complaints will be resolved as quickly and effectively as possible using available resources.  However, enforcement of violations for tall grass and weeds and noxious vegetation, abandoned shopping carts, and illegal signs may take longer to resolve or not be resolved at all. 

 

Complaint Confidentiality Policy

The City's enforcement-related confidentiality policy is based on State of Oregon public records' statutes. Enforcement records are public records but the name of complainant is exempt from disclosure. The exemption is entitled: "information submitted to a public body in confidence."   As such, any record that identifies a complainant is exempt from disclosure.   However, notes in a file or a complaint letter that does not specifically identify the complainant may be disclosed.  

The City will disclose the complainant's name if required under a valid court order or if that person is going to be a witness in an enforcement case - the "right of cross examination" requires this provision.
