Code Enforcement

The mission of Code Enforcement is to ensure compliance with the municipal code and permits issued by the City of Hawthorne. The City has a professional code enforcement team that uses their thorough knowledge of the City’s municipal code and applicable laws to act as the first line of defense in battling blight and public nuisances. Their actions are directly related to protecting the public health, safety and welfare.

The process of code enforcement begins often with witnessing a violation or receiving a complaint which initiates an investigation. Once an investigation begins, a code enforcement officer will determine the appropriate course of action. Typically, most violations can be resolved with warnings. In other cases, citations are issued. Once a person or business is in compliance the case is closed.

Hawthorne Code Enforcement operates 7 days a week and is responsible for ensuring compliance of all city codes throughout the City. The best way to contact the Code Enforcement Department is by filling out the form below.
