Code Department

test
The Code Department responds to concerns from citizens that affect the quality of life within the Borough such as zoning, building compliance, permits, property maintenance, life safety, signage, and public nuisances. We administer a fair and unbiased enforcement program to correct violations of municipal codes and land use.

We work with residents, neighborhood and business associations, public service agencies and other Borough departments to ensure properties are in compliance with the Borough Code.

Landlords are required to have their rental properties inspected annually. The Code staff inspects the rental properties for compliance with the Borough’s Minimum Housing Standards.

To obtain permit forms, housing rental forms, and zoning forms please contact Borough Hall or utilize this link to access Constituent Service Forms.
