Code Enforcement Advisory Board (CEAB)

The Butte County Code Enforcement Advisory Board is composed of 5 Board-appointed members representing the 5 Supervisorial Districts of Butte County. The Board was created, pursuant to Resolution 02-021, to advise the Board of Supervisors on code enforcement matters, and assist in the development of priorities in code enforcement activities, identification of programs for voluntary property clean-up, and funding opportunities for code enforcement and community clean-up programs. 

 The Butte County Code Enforcement Advisory Board holds regular public meetings in April and October. These are typically held on the second Wednesday of the month, 2:00 pm, in the Board of Supervisors Chambers. Additional meetings may be held.
