Our goal is to encourage both owners and tenants to voluntarily correct any violations. When a violation is reported, we open a complaint and work toward resolving the violation through a process of education, inspection and notices. In most cases, the person responsible for a violation is given an opportunity to voluntarily comply with the law and correct the situation.

Each violation has a set of enforcement procedures and time limit for compliance. However, if the violation is not corrected in the time allowed, the City may allow additional time for an education process and additional notices to resolve the violation. The property owner may also file an appeal, which also takes time. After which, the City has two enforcement options (both of which takes time):
Code Enforcement, a division of the Stillwater Police Department, issues citations for structural and non-structural related property maintenance, which includes nuisance violations such as inoperable vehicles, trash, littering and tall weeds and grass.
Code Enforcement does not enforce homeowner association (HOA) rules or make judgements concerning aesthetics. Citations are issued to ensure the health, safety and welfare of Stillwater residents.
