Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement is responsible for enforcing common residential violations in the Cobb County Ordinance, reported through complaints and inquiries. Code Enforcement also assists the Planning and Zoning Divisions with zoning issues, as well as the Development and Inspections Division with enforcement. 


Did Code Enforcement remove my sign?

Code Enforcement officers remove approximately 17,000 signs from the public right of way yearly.  

The Temporary Sign code allows placement of signage on private property for events such as elections, church or community gatherings, yard sales, and rental or sale of individual homes. Signage should not be placed in medians, on trees, utility poles, or traffic control signs or devices. All temporary signage must be located on private property with the property owner’s permission.
