SWEEPS: Code Enforcement focusing on area areas to boost compliance

City Flag

FARMERS BRANCH ~ In an effort to boost code compliance across the City, the Community Services Department has announced that Code Enforcement officers will be focusing resources on areas with a history of significant code issues.

These "sweeps" will bring all code enforcement officers together into an area, over several days, to help identify as many violations as possible and work to bring those violations into compliance.

"In the spirit of neighborhood revitalization, the Farmers Branch City Council asked City administration to increase code compliance activity by stepping up our level of enforcement," said Community Services Director Andy Gillies. "With that in mind, we are taking this non-traditional approach to help improve code compliance in specific areas."

Mr. Gillies said the sweeps will rotate throughout the City, as the need arises, while working to maintain a balance and not disrupting enforcement efforts in other parts of the City.

Anyone can report Code violations by visiting and clicking on "Report a Concern" or via the Farmers Branch App, "MyFBTX" available through the Apple App Store or on Google Play.
