The Special Services Administrator has general supervision of this activity. This department's primary function is to enforce many sections within the Municipal Code. In addition, they have enforcement responsibility for many sections in the Zoning Ordinance. The most commonly known sections deal with unsanitary premises, inoperative vehicles, sight obstructions and weeds. Code Enforcement also enforces abandoned refrigerators, business licenses, landscaping noncompliance, and operating business without licenses to name only a few.
Business Licensing is an integral part of Code Enforcement. This activity is responsible for ensuring all required activities are appropriately registered to conduct business in the City of Roswell.
Joined with Code Enforcement is Building and Plumbing Inspections. These two positions are responsible for conducting inspections (building and plumbing) of new structures, remodels, dilapidated structures, sewer leaks, etc. The two inspectors derive their authority from New Mexico Construction Industries Division through the inspector certification process. Both work closely with the state and provide appropriate. The City of Roswell does not conduct electrical inspections as that activity is with the State of New Mexico.
The goal of both activities is to ensure both contractors and the public follow accepted construction codes, improve the quality of life, and make our community a more pleasant, safe and attractive place to live. This is accomplished first by attempting to obtain voluntary compliance and if this fails, criminal/civil charges are brought against the violators in a court of competent jurisdiction. Both entities work closely together in the achievement of their mutual and individual goals.
