Code Enforcement Page
Code Enforcement Officer is defined by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, which regulates and set standards for code enforcement. Currently, there is one Code Enforcement Officer for the City of Bandera.
Code Enforcement is the inspection, improvement, and rehabilitation of environmental hazards on public and private premises by determining the presence of fire or health hazards, nuisance violations and unsafe building conditions. The City enforces its standards and requirements through the Bandera Code of Ordinances.
There are two common areas receiving code enforcement complaints on a daily basis.
A junked vehicle that is self-propelled and is:
-unable to run under its own power
-wrecked or partially wrecked or dismantled, or is inoperable and has remained inoperable more than 72 consecutive hours on public property, or is inoperable and has remained inoperable for 30 consecutive days on private property
-located any place visible from a public place or public right-of-way
-is detrimental to the safety and welfare of the City
Vehicles on jack stands more than 48 hours are prohibited.
A public nuisance is defined in Bandera’s Code of Ordinances as any act, thing, occupation, condition, or use of property that is of such a nature and continues long enough to:
-substantially annoy, injure or endanger the comfort, health repose or safety of the public
-greatly offend the public morals or decency
-unlawfully and substantially interfere with, obstruct, or tend to obstruct or render dangerous for passage, any street, alley, highway, navigable body of water or other public way
Complaints, Inspections, and Notices
All complaints alleging the existence of a public nuisance must be filed with the Code Enforcement Officer. The officer will respond promptly to inspect the premises and make a written report on the findings of the inspection. Whenever practical, photographs of the premises will be attached to the written report.
