Services We Provide
The Code Enforcement Board oversees all of the code concerns in Warren County, outside the city limits of Bowling Green. The Board itself meets the second Wednesday every month to approve or reject current citations written and served by a Code Enforcement Officer. The Board Members are private citizens appointed by Warren County Fiscal Court.
Individual agencies and divisions conduct investigations prior to issuing a citation, which is presented to the Code Board. The Department of Public Works oversees the Board meetings, as well as, Property Maintenance, Stormwater, Building, and Environmental Divisions. Public Works can be contacted at the Code Enforcement Board number for any concerns in those fields. All other code concerns should be directed to separate agencies, depending on the field. Contractor’s Licensing and City-County Planning Commission conduct their own investigations before bringing the citation before the Board. Cases are not brought to the Board until a citation has been served.
