No municipal service is more important than protecting public safety. The City of Biggs' approach to safety starts with prevention through 24-hour police patrolling, standards in planning and construction, and enforcement of City codes. Biggs is carefully preparing for contingency response through emergency planning, back-up equipment and facilities, safe-guarded utilities, and broad communications tools. Police and fire protection teams are well-trained, well-equipped, and consistently within a few minutes' response.
If you are aware a crime is being or has been committed in Biggs, please notify the Gridley-Biggs Police. If it is not a 9-1-1 emergency, you can call 846-5670 to make a report 24 hours a day. The eyes a of local citizens can make the difference in effectively preventing and responding to law enforcement problems.
The Police Department cannot address issues that they are not aware of.
For City municipal code issues, please contact Biggs Code Enforcement. You can remain anonymous, or you can identify yourself and receive follow-up communication from the city code enforcement officer.
Code Enforcement program involves two major categories as set forth in the Biggs Municipal Code by the City Council:
1) The enforcement of City planning and development codes such as setbacks, building heights, fences, accessory structures, and building without permits.
2) The City’s public nuisance, streets and roads, and public health codes that involve neighborhood health and safety problems like, outdoor marijuana cultivation, abandoned appliances, and household garbage not contained within the waste bins. Code enforcement also includes visual blight such as broken windows, yard debris, excessive weeds, parking vehicles on un-improved surfaces, and disabled or unattended vehicles.
The goals of Code Enforcement go beyond simple enforcement of the Biggs Municipal Code. Other goals include health and safety of citizens, improving quality of life in the City and preserving and improving property values.
