Do I have to comply with city codes if there is no city sewer or water lines out this far and the public road is maintained by the homeowners?
Question Details: I live on a public road with no throughway access. Also, the homeowners have to plow it. It is listed as a public road not a county. I am 26 miles from the nearest city hall/police station.
Are you within the city? Then you have to comply with city codes. The city has jurisdiction (legal power and authority) over all land within its boundaries, so if you fall within those boundaries, you have to comply with its laws and regulations, regardless of who plows, presence or absence of sewer, etc.
