Code Enforcement

The Building and Zoning Department's Code Enforcement falls into two categories. The first is plan review and the second is property maintenance.

Plan Review
The Building Department reviews all building plans to make sure they comply with the Building Code. The City of St. Ann utilizes the ICC BOCA Building Code Version 2006. The city contracts with the St. Louis County Department of Public Works to conduct plan review for electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and elevator work.

Separate permits from St. Louis County are required for this work. Additionally, plan review from either the community or West Overland Fire Protection Districts is required.

Property Maintenance
The Building and Zoning Department also conducts Code Enforcement activities to enforce the City's Housing and Occupancy Codes. For more information, please view the St. Ann Municpal Code.
