Code enforcement officials help protect the safety and health of citizens by ensuring that the buildings and land in a municipality are in accordance with housing and zoning ordinances. They can also investigate the abandonment of vehicles, as these also fall under the category of maintaining the quality of the municipality.
In addition to inspection and investigation of properties and buildings,
code enforcement officers determine the nature of environmental or
health hazards, nuisance violations and unsafe building conditions. When
this has been determined, code enforcement officers issue permits or
citations in accordance with the regulations of the municipality. In
addition, code enforcement officers must understand and comply with
state and federal regulations on land usage, zoning, business permits
and building access.
All inspectors are New York State certified. Our range of duties is varied and covers a wide range of disciplines. Our main objective is to assist the community with its progressive growth goals. Developers, builders, and residents are encouraged to contact us regarding the planning of projects. Pre-project planning and communication makes for a better development project product.
Additionally, the department assists residents and developers to understand ordinances and regulations which affect development, construction and properties in the Town of Lee in the following ways:
- Industrial Development
- Building and Fire Protection
- Property Complaints

Exemption from Zoning approval does not mean exemption from a Building Permit.
