Code Enforcement Division
The Code Enforcement Office has been provided for many years within the City of Atoka, and works to identify violations of city ordinances and state laws within the Atoka city limits.
We seek voluntary compliance from citizens to help maintain the quality appearance of our community. We try to identify problems that need to be corrected in the community before someone feels the need to advise us of the issue. Once a code violation is identified, the responsible party is notified to take corrective action.
The City of Atoka’s Code Enforcement Office uses code enforcement to seek correction of public nuisances as defined by Atoka City Codes and State Statutes (11 O.S. 22-111, 112, 112-A). A public nuisance is generally defined as a condition that affects the community’s health, safety, and welfare.
In addition to working on health, safety, and welfare issues, Code Enforcement also works on removing dilapidated properties that have become a hazard to the community. The Code Enforcement Division also monitors the Environmental Protection Agency fats, oils, and grease (FOG) program within the city limits. Annual inspections are made to ensure ordinances, state laws, and safety issues are adhered to, and that illicit discharges into the sanitary sewer systems do not occur. The division strives to keep the City of Atoka one of the cleanest communities in the state, and helps to coordinate local volunteers to work on projects to assist those in need to help maintain their property.
