Property Maintenance & Code Enforcement

The City of Burnsville has ordinances in place that help ensure homes and other property are well-maintained, safe and don’t impact the quality of life of others in a neighborhood.

Code Enforcement Process

When properties do not meet the standards outlined in the City Code, the City may issue a Notice of Violation requesting that the violation(s) be addressed. If the problem is not fixed within a specified period of time, the City may then issue an Administrative Citation.

Administrative Citations & Appeals

If you would like to request an administrative appeal hearing regarding a code violation, re-inspection fee, or corrective license action pursuant to City Code Section 1-4-7, you must submit this Appeal Form and the appropriate filing fee to the City Clerk's Office within 10 calendar days of receiving an Administrative Citation.

Keeping Burnsville a clean and attractive place to live takes every resident’s effort. Make sure your property is in compliance with these common property maintenance issues.
