Will there be City inspections of existing buildings upon annexation?
No. The City's Code Enforcement program is primarily implemented on a complaint driven basis. Staff typically does not actively look for code violations, but rather responds to public complaints reporting that a property contains a use, construction, or an activity that may not be in compliance with the City Zoning and/or Building Codes. As such, upon annexation to the City, staff will not immediately inspect existing buildings, unless a complaint is filed.
