Frequently Asked Questions

What is a code compliance?

A code compliance is the process the City of Tuscaloosa uses to obtain approval of a business location by the various City departments. This is necessary to determine whether the operation of the business would conflict with the public safety, health or welfare, or with any provision of law including but not limited to zoning laws, building and safety codes, fire codes, health codes and any other laws or codes which would potentially affect public safety, health and welfare prior to the issuance of a business license. This approval must be granted prior to issuance of a business license.
