Code Enforcement
Our Mission

In an effort to maintain the City’s quality of life to its citizens and to make the city more attractive, the City of Williams is addressing the problem of nuisances on public and private property. These nuisances include abandoned vehicles, weeds and other fire hazards, rubbish and debris, livestock, and substandard housing.

The Williams City Council has adopted Municipal Codes (laws) specifically designed to address these nuisances, and to maintain a clean environment for all citizens in our community. The City of Williams accomplishes this by working in partnership with the citizens of the community.

The mission of the Police Services Division is to promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment. We help maintain and improve the quality of our community by administering a fair and unbiased enforcement program to correct violations of municipal codes and land use requirements. We also work with residents, neighborhood associations, public service agencies and other City departments to:

  • Facilitate voluntary compliance with City codes
  • Empower community self-help programs
  • Inform and educate the public regarding health and safety issues
  • Establish community priorities for enforcement programs
