Ordinances & Resolutions

Residential and Rental Property Nuisance Abatement Ordinance

Our Board Members and Village will now have in place a series of Village Ordinances which will keep or Village a clean and respectful place to live. The focus is on violators of our Ordinances on a continual basis. We will have our Village Code-enforcement Officer who will have the authority to inspect and report Code-Enforcement violations to our building codes, fire codes, zoning restrictions, etc., to improve the quality of life and resolve life safety issues within our Village. Some of the conditions might include hazards of fire, accident or other calamities; lack of adequate ventilation, light or sanitary facilities; dilapidation; disrepair; structural defects; un-cleanliness; failure to comply with the requirements of the building code or the certificate of occupancy. All of this is designed to be a fair and reasonable review process by an inspection expert who will address property ownership and rental issues which will include a nuisance abatement program.

Our goal is to keep the Village of Rockdale a pleasant place to live. Village Board members remain diligent with their efforts make life in Rockdale a pleasant place to live and raise a family.
