      When you think of the Building Inspection and Code Enforcement Department you probably think permits, right? Issuing permits and performing inspections, while at the center of our department, is definitely not all we do. Our inspectors enforce the State of Wisconsin Building Code Statues and city ordinances.

Secure Entry Ordinance
On May 2, 2023, The Common Council of the City of Sun Prairie approved the new Secure Entry Ordinance.

All residential buildings with 3 or more units be equipped with a secure locking system with an approved self-closing device. Each entry door to individual units be equipped with door viewers, and that all first-floor windows and sliding doors be equipped with approved ventilating locking systems and that these systems be properly maintained at all times.

The secure Entry Ordinance is effective immediately. Compliance with the new standard shall be required by January 1, 2024.

This ordinance was created to improve the safety for residents of the City of Sun Prairie.

Landlords/owners will be responsible for meeting the standards, not the tenants.
