Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Division is a functional area within Lowndes County Fire Rescue, focusing on the enforcement of codes, ordinances, and zoning through education and compliance. The division works jointly with the Valdosta / Lowndes Inspection Department, Valdosta and Lowndes Zoning Departments, and the Georgia Forestry Commission.

The Code Enforcement Division responds to the concerns from citizens that affect the quality of life within Lowndes County such as overgrown lots, inoperative vehicles, unsafe structures, illegal dumping, illegal burning, care of premises, and littering. The division is primarily complaint driven in that we respond to calls from citizens and county agencies. We do however perform limited patrol of areas to ensure proper compliance with county codes and ordinances.

To contact Code Enforcement or to report a violation, contact Lowndes County Fire Rescue at 229-671-2730 and ask for the code enforcement division. If you receive a citation, court appearances are made at the Lowndes County Magistrate Court located in the Judicial Complex on 327 N. Ashley St.
