Code Enforcement

Property maintenance and other code issues continue to be a high priority for Mission residents. Well maintained homes and yards improve the quality of life and preserve property values. Please read below the most common city code issues that can easily be addressed by residents.

High Weeds & Grass 

All property must keep weeds and grass shorter than eight inches in height. Sweeping or blowing lawn and yard debris into the street is prohibited. Untended or uncontrolled brush and woody vines are classified as nuisance weeds and should be removed. This is a common problem along fence lines and around established trees & bushes.

Outdoor Storage

City Code prohibits rubbish or garbage accumulating on or in any property. This includes but is not limited to: Filth, excrement, lumber, tree limbs, wood, glass, rocks, dirt, cans, containers, paper, trash, plastic, petroleum products, styrofoam, metal, discarded appliances or other household items, or any other offensive or disagreeable thing or substance.            

Trash & Recycling Containers

 Trash & Recycling should not be placed out earlier than 6:00 PM the night before your scheduled pickup day. Containers when stored should be kept in the garage or behind the front of the home.

 Property Maintenance

Property owners should keep all buildings and grounds in a clean, sanitary, and safe condition. This includes keeping exteriors in good repair to prevent declining property values. Neighborhood Services enforces property codes dealing with: exterior walls, guttering, roofs, windows, driveways, accessory structures, fences, & trees.

Inoperable & Abandoned Vehicles

Property owners should not park any vehicle outdoors when such vehicle is inoperable for any reason. Vehicles must have current registration on the vehicle, be legally street operable, and move every 14 days.               


If you are responsible for a code violation and refuse to correct the problem, citations may be issued. If convicted in court, you may be fined as much as $1,000 per day for each offense.
