We care about the appearance and safety of all City properties. The Code Enforcement Division aims to protect the health, safety, and welfare of all Rhinelander residents through the preservation and improvement of the housing stock by assuring safe, decent, and sanitary housing while conserving the integrity of our neighborhoods.

As part of the City's blight elimination initiative, we have been identifying properties that violate the City's Code of Ordinance in order to bring them into compliance.

We encourage property owners and renters to keep up with the appearance of their properties, and to report problems that are not addressed in a timely manner.

Common Property Maintenance Violations 

To submit a property complaint use the Citizen Request and Complaint Portal.   Registration is required prior to submitting a property complaint.  An email will be sent to the registrant once approved.  After registering once, the registrant will not need to do so again for the Citizen Request and Complaint Portal.
