Codes Department

The City adheres to the International Property Maintenance Codes (ICC) and its own codified ordinances as the framework for enforcing property maintenance. High grass, missing windows, and sanitary conditions are just some of the aspects of property maintenance that the City monitors and enforces.

Each area of the City has one of three Code Enforcement Officers assigned to it. These individuals monitor their areas for violations and investigate any complaints of improper property maintenance made by neighbors, landlords, etc.

Any issues regarding Code Enforcement, please call our offices.


The City of Johnstown has thousands of rental units located throughout the City.  It is important to the City that these rental units have required safety features in place to ensure the safety of all tenants.  The City has updated our Rental Inspection ordinance to waive registration fees and lower the cost of inspections.  All rental units within the City must be registered with the City of Johnstown Community and Economic Development Office.
