Property Maintenance


The Division of Property Maintenance Enforcement is administered by the City of Newark, Department of Public Safety. Joe Paul serves as the Code Official. The Code Official is responsible for overseeing the operations and enforcement of the Property Maintenance Division.

The Property Maintenance Code 07-03 of the Newark City Ordinances was adopted January 17, 2007. The Ordinance was amended on June 17, 2008 for the purposes of clarity and administration of the Code.
