Code Compliance


My name is Sean, and I am the new Code Compliance Inspector for the City of Columbus. I come from nearly 20 years of law enforcement experience and am excited to start a new career here in Columbus.

My role is working with citizens and businesses here in Columbus to gain voluntary compliance with a variety of issues. Some common issues that are concerns for residents are junk vehicles, ongoing complaints regarding certain animal issues, potential ongoing noise issues and potential zoning violations. In regards to businesses, the City of Columbus has a goal to confirm that our local businesses are adhering to their Conditional Use Permit (CUP) or Interim Use Permit (IUP).

Our goal here is to work together to come up with a solution to whatever issues is raised. Please note that the my role is not a substitute for law enforcement. If there is an issue that needs police attention or something is happening currently, please call 911. If the issue is not an emergency, the Anoka County Sheriff's Office's non-emergency phone number is 763-427-1212.
