Environmental Department

The Environmental Department’s mission is to protect and assist in the enhancement of the city’s natural resources and ecological health through the utilization of environmental stewardship, education and outreach, municipal leadership, environmental code enforcement, vector control, effective communication, and collaboration with all citizens.

The department accomplishes this mission through a variety of methods including code enforcement related to environmental or public nuisance ordinances. The Department collaborates with other departments within the City for ordinance updates related to development and environmental issues. State and federal permits held by the city are managed by the department as well as the review and inspection of construction site permits for environmental compliance. Coordinating with federal, state and local entities for regional environmental concerns allow us the ability to provide public education and outreach on environmental issues specific to our area. The health of our citizens and environmental is paramount to the City; therefore water quality monitoring and vector control management are key to our department’s operations.
