Codes Enforcement

   The City of Peculiar is a well-kept community and Codes Enforcement helps keep the City a healthy, safe, clean and attractive place to live and work.  City Staff work with residents to take an active role in improving and maintaining the quality of life in their neighborhoods, as well as maintaining property values.

  The City Code Enforcement Officer identifies, investigates, and responds to complaints concerning violations of the City’s Property Maintenance Code (link provided below) and related policies.  We’re available to help with issues regarding:

·         Weeds or Tall Grass

·         Lack of property maintenance

·         Unlicensed or inoperable vehicles

·         Trash or debris in yard

·         Other situations related to the Property Maintenance Code

Property owners found in violation of the City Code are given notification and an opportunity to correct the situation without further action.  A listing of current Violations is available at the link below:

  Generally residents are very cooperative and most complaints are resolved after the first contact.  Citations to appear in City Court may be issued however, if compliance is not obtained.

You may file a complaint by submitting a "File a Concern" Form (link below) or by calling Codes Enforcement at 816-779-2226.  Please provide specific and detailed information, including the exact location/address and a complete description of the issue you are reporting.  All information provided is kept confidential.


The City of Peculiar adopted the 2012 ICC Building Codes on October 19, 2015; a listing of the adopted Codes (and their amendments) are provided under the Building Permits Section of this Website.



All Codes are delineated in greater detail in the Municipal City Code and are available at City Hall.
