Code Enforcement is a subdivision of the Administration Department of the Borough of Roselle and reports to the Borough Administrator.
This department is responsible for enforcing Municipal Code regulations on private property throughout the Borough. The Roselle Municipal
Code regulates zoning, property maintenance, and other substandard conditions on residential, commercial, and industrial properties. Code
Enforcement oversees vacant property maintenance and abandoned properties, and the rehabilitation of these properties.
Our objective is to help maintain and improve the quality of the community by administering an enforcement program to correct violations
of municipal codes. The Zoning Officer is charged with, but not limited to handling community and neighborhood land use requirements, such
as the use of the structure, location, configuration and size, fence permits, and permit for impervious surface. Code Enforcement is charged
with, but not limited to handling exterior and interior maintenance, such as, garbage and debris, vegetative overgrowth, abandoned or
inoperable vehicles, parking vehicles on unimproved surfaces, car parts, or other visual and hazardous nuisances on commercial, business,
and residential property.
The enforcement of property maintenance and nuisance codes helps to ensure that there is a minimum level standard required for maintaining
all properties in Roselle. YOUR help is needed to keep the Borough of Roselle a safe and healthy community where all those who live, work or
visit can experience a sense of pride and well-being.
Many people are not exactly sure what to do when they have a compliant regarding a possible violation. We are happy to discuss the situation
and will explain what type of steps we will take to have any violations corrected. The complainant's name is protected information, as is any
inspection data, inspection result's, letters, phone calls, emails, or photos concerning the case investigation. Only upon closing of a case
through compliance or issuance of a citation for prosecution of a case does select case information become public data.
The complainant's name, however, remains protected information. The Borough of Roselle wants to help make your efforts to improve your
property successful and make your experience enjoyable. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns you would like to be
