Burnsville's Licensing & Code Enforcement staff work with residents to help ensure clean, safe and healthy neighborhoods in Burnsville. This is accomplished by inspecting for and enforcing basic housing and property maintenance codes that affect the quality of life for both renters and private property owners. By working with residents to remedy things that have the potential to be unsafe, unsanitary or infringe on the rights of others, the City hopes to maintain property values and assure the preservation of the City's existing housing supply.
Burnsville Property Maintenance Inspectors take a proactive approach to property maintenance issues in the city. Inspectors periodically canvass neighborhoods to help identify code violations that can prove to be unsafe, unsanitary or detrimental to the neighborhood. It is then the goal of inspectors to work with residents to bring any property maintenance issues into compliance with State and City code.
