The Code Enforcement Division of the Community Development Department works tirelessly to remove blight from neighborhoods, maintain property values, and bolster public safety efforts. Each year, the Code Enforcement Division issues over 5,000 work orders on private property to cut grass, trim weeds, remove trash, pick up tires, and remove debris. Code Enforcement has a contract with JIMAX Landscaping to remediate environmental violations when a work order is issued.

In an effort to promote hiring from within the neighborhoods where a majority of the work takes place, City staff along with first District Councilwoman Denise Moore met with JIMAX Landscaping and Peoria Citizens Committee for Economic Opportunity (PCCEO) to discuss how to best promote these job opportunities. As a result of these talks, PCCEO is hosting a job fair with JIMAX Landscaping that will occur February 19th from 9:00 AM-11:00 AM at the PCCEO Office Building located at 711 W McBean.

For questions about the job fair, please contact Donna Crowder (PCCEO) at 309.216.3508.
