Code Enforcement

The mission of the Code Enforcement Division is to enforce the health, safety and welfare provisions of the Boone County Code of Ordinances and to promote, protect and improve the health, safety and welfare of the citizens and visitors to Boone County. Where violations occur, our goal is to work with our citizens to achieve voluntary compliance, whenever possible, and to ensure an efficient and fair process.
