At a recent meeting of the Kane County Board's Development Committee, the head of the County's Property Code Enforcement Division reported that October was a busy month for the unit.

“We had 29 new cases, we closed 40 cases, 29 cases remained active at the end of the month and we did have to take three to adjudication," said John Mall, the County's Property Code Enforcement Officer. 

The recently established Property Code Enforcement Division routinely conducts inspections of both commercial and residential areas, addressing citizen complaints related to property concerns. Common inspections include matters such as overgrown grass or non-functional vehicles, ensuring compliance with building codes, and addressing unpermitted land changes affecting drainage pathways. 

The division works with property owners to address issues, seeking resolution before initiating any legal proceedings.
