Property Maintenance

In keeping with the City's desire to maintain a healthy, safe and stable Wentzville, a Property Maintenance Program is in place to meet this need. A cursory inspection from a vehicle is conducted in accordance with the requirements of the International Property Maintenance Code. This program begins every year in April and ends at the end of September.
The parameters of the program only allow for one half of the City to be inspected on the exterior per year. In even numbered years, the West side of the City is inspected and in the odd numbered years the East side of the City is inspected (Wilmer Road is the dividing point between East and West). Residents found to be in non-compliance will be left with a notice of the violation and a timeline to make repairs.
Concerned residents need not wait for the Property Maintenance Program to occur in their area. A phone call regarding a Property Maintenance issue can be made to the Customer Service Center at anytime. Residents may file a concern by using the online Concern System or by calling the Customer Service Center at (636) 639-2121.
Code Enforcement Inspectors respond to resident concerns throughout the year in addition to the Property Maintenance Program offered April through September. Inspectors respond to all concerns that may pertain to:
  • Tall grass and weeds in excess of eight inches
  • Trash and debris on premises
  • Peeling paint
  • Gutters in need of repair
  • Broken windows and doors
  • Sidewalk or driveway deterioration
  • Standing water attracting mosquitoes
  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Fence damaged/deteriorated
These violations and others may be reported to the Customer Service Center at any time. Inspectors will verify the concern within 72 hours and respond back upon your request. Concerns may be filed anonymously as well.
