City of Canyon Lake to change name of Special Enforcement Department

The Canyon Lake City Council approved the Introduction and First Reading of Ordinance No. 198, changing the name of the city’s Special Enforcement Department to Code Enforcement Department; updating references throughout the Canyon Lake municipal code, and authorizing the city manager to make changes to all city documents necessary to reflect the name change.

The city manager and city attorney have continued to review the Canyon Lake Municipal Code to determine which provisions should be updated in keeping with best practices for cities. “Special Enforcement Department” is a designation not commonly used in other jurisdictions. Most cities designate the department as the “Code Enforcement Department.”

The ordinance authorizes the city manager to change all municipal code references to “Special Enforcement Department,” “Special Enforcement,” and “Special Enforcement Officer” within the Canyon Lake Municipal Code and other city documents to “Code Enforcement Department,” “Code Enforcement,” and “Code Enforcement Officer,” respectively, and to change any city documents, position titles, or any other references to be consistent with the intent of this ordinance.

This change will bring the designation into line with other surrounding communities and will affect the duties or powers of the city’s Code enforcement Department.
