The Code Compliance Division of the Economic and Community Development Department is responsible for administering all Town ordinances to protect community health, promote public safety, and enhance the quality of life in Gila Bend. The Town's Code Compliance Contractor (Paloma Security) responds to potential violations such as junk and debris on private property, weeds, on-site recreational vehicle parking and storage, inoperable/abandoned vehicles, building regulations, illegal signage, and unauthorized home occupations.
When a violation is identified, the responsible parties are issued a notice, stating the nature of the violation and requesting the violation be corrected within a reasonable time (normally 10 calendar days). The Town's goal is to work with the community to achieve voluntary compliance. If the violation is not resolved with the Code Compliance Contractor, a citation may be issued, resulting in possible fines and legal proceedings.
