Code enforcement is a multi-layered process. The standards that the City of Monticello uses are the "Building Codes". The codes that the City of Monticello has adopted have been established as the minimum standards for construction and maintenance of structures inside the City Limits. These adopted codes work in conjunction with the City of Monticello Zoning ordinance, to help protect the residents of the City by protecting their safety and their investment in their property.
The City of Monticello protects the citizens through a program of inspections and code enforcement. This ranges from inspection of new construction to the inspection and potential issuance of code violations for existing properties. In any inspection, the goal is for compliance with the codes.
