There are five Code Enforcement Officers that serve the citizens of unincorporated El Paso County. Enforcement action is complaint driven so citizens must report their concerns to Code Enforcement. Citizens may report a violation anonymously; however, citizens are encouraged to provide their contact information when submitting a complaint. This information will allow Code Enforcement staff to contact citizens to provide updates or request additional information. Please note that any information provided to Code Enforcement is subject to the Colorado Open Records Act.
