St. Joseph County is in the process of establishing a Code Enforcement program. There are three new ordinances that are being proposed for adoption:

The public is able to submit comments online using the comment forms located at the bottom of the page. The public comment period will end on Friday, February 18, 2022. Comments from online and at the public meetings, will then be presented to the County Council at the Committee meeting on Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
