Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Department plays an important role in maintaining Whitestown’s quality of life by investigating municipal code and zoning complaints, actively patrolling the community, and taking action to keep buildings, homes and properties from becoming hazardous to public health, a negative influence on property values, a nuisance, and/or an “eyesore”.

To submit a complaint, please email codeenforcement@whitestown.in.gov or call 317-372-8188.
