The City of Grand Prairie Code Services department is responsible for handling city code violations. The city is divided into 10 districts, or areas, each of which has one officer assigned to handle all violations within that district.

You can now file code complaints online, as well as check on the status of existing cases with the City of Grand Prairie’s new E-Code Enforcement services. Click on File a Complaint to submit a complaint form online. Click on Code Complaint Inquiry to check for existing cases at specific addresses and locations, view violations, inspection results, previous actions and pending actions.

Abatement of code violations, in some cases, may take several days or even weeks. The City must first notify the property owner of the violation by certified letter. In most cases, the property owner (or tenant) has 10 days to resolve the violation. If the violation remains after 10 days, the city issues a citation and fine. For tall grass, the city will contract with a company to mow the area, fining the owner and placing a lien on the property. For other violations, citations and fines continue to be issued until the problem is cured. Only in extreme cases will the city go in and clear the property of the violation if it presents a public health and safety hazard. See the Code Enforcement Ordinances at our ordinance website.

You may report a violation online by completing our Online Complaint Form, or contact our office at 972-237-8296.
