Code enforcement is administered by the Police Department with assistance by the Planning Department on zoning issues. For more information or to report a violation, please call police dispatch at 970-625-8095. See the Police Department webpage for more information.
The goal of code enforcement is to protect the character of residential and business areas through the investigation of items such as junk vehicles, weed and rubbish complaints, and zoning violations. We preserve the character of Rifle neighborhoods by ensuring compliance with the regulations of the Municipal Code designed to maintain a quality appearance for the community.
The City's approach is to establish relationships with both the community and business owners to communicate various City codes and to assist with a proactive solution to solving problems.
