The City of Owosso Building Department oversees code enforcement efforts within the city limits. The mission of code enforcement is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of City of Owosso residents by promoting safe, healthy and sanitary housing through education and enforcement of property maintenance, zoning, nuisance and rental inspection codes. Code enforcement further benefits the community by protecting property values through the elimination of blight such as trash, vacant structures, dilapidated buildings, junk cars, and tall grass.
Code enforcement efforts are initiated primarily on a complaint basis. Mac McIlmurray is the City's Code Enforcement Official. As such he receives all complaints, determines if a code violation has occurred, and, in concert with other City departments, initiates efforts to remedy the situation.
