The City of Kirksville Code of Ordinances requires properties in the city to maintain a clean appearance. The Codes Department has an inspector who is the primary enforcement officer for our main violation complaints: excessive trash or rubbish, unlicensed vehicles, excessive height of grass or weeds, and exterior display or storage of household items. The specific code for enforcement of these violations is:
