Building and Safety

Local government offices that administer and enforce building code statutes which provide minimum standards for homes, office buildings and other structures and help to ensure through a rigorous permitting and inspection process that buildings within the jurisdiction are safe and sanitary. Building codes regulate all aspects of construction projects including the structural design of buildings, sanitation facilities, environmental control, ventilation, light and building materials; and apply to new structures, renovations, demolitions and relocations as well as sheds and other storage structures, walls, fences, decks and swimming pools.

Power Line/Pipeline Information

Programs provide information about the location of corridors for the distribution of oil, gas, hydrogen and electricity; current and pending rights of way for power lines and pipelines across tracts of federal, state and private land; plans for the construction, maintenance and repair of electric power lines, natural gas pipelines and other components of energy "superhighways"; and regulations relating to secondary land uses around existing energy corridors. Overhead power lines are electric power transmission cables suspended by a sequence of steel towers or poles. The land directly under and adjacent to these power cables may be suitable for industrial uses; water distribution and oil or gas pipelines; urban trails; passive or active recreational spaces; or natural environmental areas such as urban wetlands. Also included are programs that provide information or respond to complaints from people about purported health risks associated with exposure to elevated levels of ELF magnetic fields such as those originating from electric power transmission lines or safety issues associated with transmission equipment; the impact of power lines and pipelines on surrounding wildlife and vegetation along the corridors; or who have concerns about other related issues.

Waste Management Services

Programs that are responsible for the collection, separation, storage, transportation, transfer, processing, treatment and environmentally safe disposal or recycling of solid and liquid waste materials that are produced by households, businesses and industry.

Weed Abatement/Brush Control

Programs that enforce the responsibility of property owners to clear hazardous weeds or chaparral from their yards and lots by notifying them when weeds and brush have reached hazardous proportions and performing the work themselves when owners fail to comply. Charges for the work are placed on the negligent owner's property tax bill.
