Code Enforcement Division


Belton's Code Enforcement Division is responsible for enforcing various City Ordinances related to the maintenance and use of property.  As a priority of City Council since 2017 and through a cooperative effort with our citizens, we can maintain property values and create a better quality of life within our community.  All concerns and cases follow a standard work flow(PDF, 141KB).

On September 27, 2022, the City Council approved the adoption of the 2018 International Property Maintenance Code with local amendments, effective January 1, 2023. See Ordinance No. 2022-4740(PDF, 867KB) for local amendments.

  • Tall grass / weeds in excess of 7 inches
  • Junk / debris stored outdoors
  • Inoperable vehicles (to include missing operable parts, partially wrecked & expired tags)
  • Parking / storing of vehicles, trailers & recreational vehicles on grass
  • Downed tree limbs or other yard waste


Additional restrictions may exist for your neighborhood in private covenants attached to the deed of your property.  Check your subdivision covenants or contact your Home Owner's Association to find out if there are additional restrictions.

The City does not enforce subdivision covenants.  Subdivision covenants are private land use restrictions that must be enforced through the Home Owner's Association or by individual home owners.
