The Zoning Ordinance and other County Ordinances are enforced throughout the unincorporated areas of Lexington County by the Code Enforcement Officers of the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department. Code Enforcement Officers are sworn law enforcement officers who receive the same instruction, training, and equipment as regular patrol deputies. Code Enforcement Officers receive additional training concerning complex county code ordinances and state laws.
Code Enforcement Officers are responsible for enforcing code violations which address public health and safety issues, including regulations involving sign violations, impact noise, unregistered vehicles, and other Zoning Ordinance infractions. Enforcement actions are taken both proactively and in response to citizen complaints.
For more information regarding code enforcement or to contact a code enforcement officer call 785-2454. Please leave your name and phone number and the address or location of the violation, along with the type of violation when calling code enforcement. This will enable an officer to efficiently and effectively address your concerns and to be able to inform you of the outcome.
