Code Compliance
The City of Saratoga works to ensure the health and safety of the community and maintain a high quality of life. The City's Code Compliance Program is one mechanism by which the City of Saratoga is able to maintain standards of health, safety, and high quality of life within Saratoga. The Code Compliance Program does this by responding to complaints of City Code violations, such as overgrown weeds, blighted properties, or noise.

The City's program operates on a complaint basis, meaning that in most cases a complaint must be filed before City staff investigates complaints. There are exceptions noted in the City's Code Compliance Policy. The Code Compliance Program strives to achieve voluntary compliance of violations before official enforcement action is taken.

Additionally, the City does not accept anonymous complaints. The City recognizes that some complainants may not want their names disclosed for fear of retaliation. The City makes no assurances that the identity of the complaining party will remain confidential.
