Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Program helps keep the City of Ouray a healthy, safe, clean, and attractive place to live and work.  City Staff work with residents to take a role in improving and maintaining the quality of life of their neighborhoods, as well as maintaining property values.


What You Can Do to Help
Take a look at your property.  Make sure you don't have any hazards or potential violations such as: weeds, garbage, graffiti, litter, junk, debris, illegal signs, discarded furniture, discarded appliances and inoperative vehicles.

If a violation has occurred, the code enforcement officer will try to resolve it first through voluntary compliance.  If this approach fails, the officer may begin formal civil and/or criminal enforcement proceedings.
