Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Division of the Community Development Department is responsible for enforcement of adopted rules and regulations of the Village.  The Division is concerned with four (4) major objectives:  public health and safety, education, public service and community appearance.  The Division ensures that all environmental nuisances in residential neighborhoods and on commercial properties are eliminated and that substandard and deteriorated structures become compliant with minimum property maintenance code requirements. 

The Village strives to inform all owners of residential and non-residential properties of maintenance codes so that they do not create nuisances.  However, the Village also relies on information from the public.

If a violation is witnessed, please contact the Code Enforcement Division either by:


(815) 936-5100 Ext. 6

Code Compliance

Generally, the Village’s goal is to work with property owners to obtain compliance versus issuing fines through the adjudication court process.  The following is a typical enforcement process:

  1. A code violation is witnessed by Village Staff or reported by a concerned resident, business owner or property owner.
  2. In most cases, a courtesy notice (written or verbal) will be issued to the affected property owner. This notice will identify the code violation and a date certain for correction. 
    1. If violation is addressed after receiving a courtesy notice, then there will be no further action by the Code Enforcement Officer.
    2. If violation is not corrected after receiving a courtesy notice, then the Code Enforcement Officer will take additional measures by issuing a ticket with an established court date.
  3. If compliance is obtained prior to the court date, the Code Officer will inform the judge that the violation is corrected. If compliance is not obtained, the judge will ultimately determine the course of action if the violation has not been corrected.
  4. The Code Enforcement Officer follows up with a site inspection of the property to check the status of violation/s.
