Unsafe Conditions

Whenever in the opinion of the code official, there is imminent danger due to an unsafe condition, the code official shall order the necessary work to be done, including the boarding up of openings, to render such structure temporarily safe; the closing of unlawful, unsafe, and vacant structures, or structures unfit for human occupancy; the closing of streets; and performance of emergency repairs; and shall cause such other action to be taken as the code official deems necessary to meet such emergency.

To make a complaint, or if you feel code enforcement could be of assistance with your neighborhood or community organization, or if you have questions pertaining to city ordinances or a violation notice, please do not hesitate to contact the code enforcement division at 313-563-0835. Inter-active complaint and comment forms are also available in the "Assistance Center" on this web site.
