The Plainfield Charter Township Ordinance Enforcement Department handles complaints and violations observed by citizens, businesses and township employees, such as:

Inoperable Vehicles  - Trash & Junk  - Signs  - Exterior Building Maintenance  - Outdoor Storage of Vehicles and RVs - Noise - Tall Weeds and Grass - Barking Dogs

Once your violation complaint has been received, it will be investigated and the appropriate actions will be taken to correct said violation. Please do not expect the violation to be corrected immediately, as our Ordinance Enforcement Officers have specific guidelines to follow to remedy such matters.  In some instances, this process may take a few days or even a few months.  Please understand that we sincerely intend to work with the public and the residents of Plainfield Charter Township and not against them.  It is the Township's policy to allow the landowner to remedy the problem once they have been made aware of the violation. If they fail to act, the Township will take further legal action to correct the violation.

The ordinance enforcement officers are generally available during morning hours.
