In December 2011, the Township Board adopted the Whitewater Township Code Enforcement Policy.
The mission of Code Enforcement is to enhance Whitewater Township’s livability by protecting the health, safety and welfare of Township residents and visitors by assuring compliance with the Township’s Zoning and General Ordinances. The Township will assure compliance both by encouraging voluntary compliance and by following progressive steps, including legal action, for ordinance violators.
The Township’s policy is to achieve compliance with ordinances in cases of reported and discovered violations. However, not all violations have the same degree of severity. As such, the Township has established through this manual priority ranking and procedures. The intent is to allow the level of enforcement that best fits the type and circumstances of the violations within clear and objective criteria, consistent with the established priorities and maximize available resources.
For more information, please see the complete policy at the link below.
