Code Enforcement

In 2016, the cities of Georgetown, Sadieville and Stamping Ground and Scott County joined forces to form the Local Government of Scott County Joint Code Enforcement Board. Pursuant to an Interlocal Agreement, the City of Georgetown will administer the code enforcement division, which investigates alleged violations of these jurisdictions’ ordinances. Examples of such violations include:

  • Tall grass
  • Property maintenance
  • Stormwater violations
  • Nuisances
  • Loud Noises
  • Broken Sidewalks

If a violation is observed, a code enforcement officer will issue a Notice of Violation or a Citation, depending upon the circumstances. Property owners are given a certain amount of time to either correct the violation or contest the Citation. For more information, you can view Georgetown’s Code Enforcement Board Ordinance here. We are also working on a forthcoming Citizens’ Guide to Code Enforcement.

To report a violation, call Code Enforcement at 502-603-5844 or email us.
