Code Enforcement helps to keep Butts County safe and properties free from unsightly debris and potentially harmful structures. Code Enforcement works closely with Planning and Development, Public Works, and the Butts County Sheriff’s Office to enforce Butts County’s zoning ordinances.

Let’s Keep Our Butts Clean and Beautiful! 

The mission of Butts County Code Enforcement is a collaborative effort between Butts County Government and The Butts County Sheriff’s Office. The goal is to foster a partnership with, and between, the citizens of Butts County to promote and enhance the beauty of Butts County through education, public action and service.

Butts County would like to empower citizens to make Butts County a cleaner, greener more thriving community through ongoing participation in recycling and cleanup programs. With the help of volunteers, public and private partners we can do this together.
