Unified Code Enforcement


The City of Augusta’s Code Enforcement Division serves the incorporated areas of Augusta- Richmond County administering Property Maintenance Codes, Minimum Housing Standards, Zoning Ordinance, as well as State and Local Nuisance Codes to include environmental issues.


The purpose of the Code Enforcement Division is to improve neighborhoods throughout Augusta-Richmond County, and increase livability by creating safe and healthy conditions, removing blight, educating citizens, enforcing municipal codes, promoting pride of ownership and community, and building collaborative relationships with residents, businesses, community groups and local government agencies.

While these goals may sound simple, cooperation and support from businesses, property owners, and citizens are necessary to make them attainable.
