Property maintenance inspectors ensure that the Property Maintenance Code is properly enforced.  The code requires that all properties and structures, including both residential and commercial, are being well maintained.  The following is a list of commonly addressed items: routine lawn & shrubbery maintenance, weed control, gutters and downspouts being cleaned & securely attached, peeling and chipping paint, repair/replacement of broken concrete drives & walks, etc.  All property owners are responsible for the continual upkeep of their property.  The goal of the property maintenance inspection program is to preserve the quality of properties through proper maintenance.
