Austin Code Makes Changes to Address Emergency Orders

COVID-19 News ,

Austin Code Department is working with Austin Police and Austin Fire Departments to enforce the city’s Emergency Order. Currently, Austin Code is focused on educating the community about the orders and requirements they contain and thanks the community for its overwhelming voluntarily compliance. 

Austin Code Department is still completing inspections that are not COVID-19 related, but due to staffing availability and pressing priorities those inspections may take a little longer to be completed. To keep residents and Austin Code inspectors safe, all interior inspections of occupied dwellings have been suspended except when there is an immediate threat to life or safety.

Properties with active Notices of Violation (NOVs) who may be experiencing COVID19-related difficulties meeting deadlines should contact their inspectors. Austin Code Department will work on compliance timelines with property owners on a case-by-case basis. To contact Austin Code about compliance extensions or for any questions or additional information about Austin Code and their efforts during this time contact Amy Moosman , Community Engagement Specialist, Austin Code Department, c: 512-696-2492 o: 512-974.3089 or amy.moosman@austintexas.gov
