The administration and enforcement of ordinances of the Township fall under many departments. These include the Police Department, Fire Department, Building Department, D.P.W. Department, and Parks Recreation and Maintenance Department.
The function of the Code Enforcement Office is to enforce some of our ordinances such as: Tree & Woodland Preservation, anti-Blight, Litter, Business Licenses, Sidewalk, Animal Control, Solid Waste, and several sections of the Zoning Ordinance.
The most frequently asked questions and complaints received involve the parking and/or storage of motor vehicles, recreational vehicles, etc.
The following apply to all Residential Districts:
Our Sign Ordinance
It has become increasingly popular to place signs at intersections and along roadways as a means of advertising homes for sale, businesses available, insurance rates, etc. However, the placement of signs in the right-of-way area is a violation of the Shelby Twp. Litter Ordinance. The ordinance not only allows for the removal of signs as litter, but also prosecution in District Court.
Our Tree Ordinance
Many residents and landowners wonder if and when a permit is needed to cut down a tree. Since the ordinance may be confusing, and if you are unsure of its requirements, it is best to contact this office for information.
