Property Maintenance and Code Enforcement

The City of Vassar works to protect the health and wellbeing of Vassar residents through the preservation of its residential and commercial infrastructure. Responsibilities include community-wide enforcement of the Property Maintenance Code and other nuisance ordinances, the investigation of nuisance complaints, and referrals to appropriate county and state agencies in situations where local codes do not apply.

Enforcement efforts are coordinated to the greatest extent possible with other City departments and County and State officials. City staff also work closely with the community, maintaining positive relationships with various stakeholders, neighborhood groups, property owners and residents.
