Code Violations

What Is a Code Violation?
Our neighborhoods are the environment in which we live and raise our families. Understanding the importance of preserving and improving the quality of our homes and neighborhoods, Crete has adopted codes that govern the use and maintenance of private property. The Village Codes deal with both private residential property and commercial property.

What Is Not a Code Violation?
The Village is trying to expend its resources, your tax dollars, in the most appropriate and efficient manner. Some neighborhood disputes that may be reported do not fall under our jurisdiction. We can act on behalf of the public at-large but not on behalf of 1 citizen against another.
