What is Code Enforcement?
Code Enforcement works to improve the quality of life in the Town of East Hampton. Code Enforcement exists not to punish individual property owners, but to maintain the greater good of the community by achieving compliance with adopted codes. The Department relies on our residents in many ways: First, to set an example by learning about, and adhering to, the Town codes, and secondly by contacting us when violations are observed.

The Code Enforcement Department is charged with enforcing codes which address public health and safety issues, including regulations related to garbage and rubbish, overgrown vegetation, inoperable or unregistered vehicles on private property, zoning and dangerous buildings.
