The Department of Public Works, under the leadership of Nichalos D. Gardner, Ph.D., P.E., Director, is dedicated to serving the people who visit, live, work, or play in St. Louis County. We ensure health, safety and well being through reasonable and judicious code enforcement and quality services.

Building construction, neighborhood preservation, land disturbance and zoning codes are enforced in unincorporated St Louis County and - with the exception of zoning - as a contractual service to most of the County's 90 municipalities.
