Code Compliance

Code Compliance

Code Compliance enforces land and property codes to eliminate conditions that threaten the life, health, safety, and general welfare of residents. The department investigates complaints about possible violations.  

Columbia Borough Council adopted the "International Property Maintenance Code 2018". The Property Maintenance Code is for issues such as grass/weeds, snow removal, trash and any other property interior or exterior maintenance issues.

***Update:  Resolution 20-26, approved and signed on December 22, 2020, decreased the fee to appeal a quick ticket from $100 to $25. 

The Borough and the Columbia Cat Action Team (CCAT) are working together to help tackle the feral cat issue in our borough. Feral cats are a significant problem in many communities and we are fortunate to have the Columbia Animal Shelter and their hard working staff assisting us.
