Commercial Business/Property Inspections Program

The City of Newton Commercial Business/Property Inspection program was developed to ensure the health and safety of Newton's residents and visitors. The City Council has established a goal of improving curb appeal within the community. 

The authorization to carry out this program by the Newton Fire Department is found the Newton, Iowa Code of Ordinances: Title XV, Chapter 159, which authorizes inspections of commercial businesses/ properties in order to enforce regulations. 

The Newton Fire Department oversees the Commercial Business/Property Inspection Program using contracted inspections with Iowa Inspections, LLC. The program was updated, finalized and went into effect on January 1, 2021.

The Newton Fire Department hosted Zoom meetings to discuss the implementation of the Commercial Inspection Program. Click here to view the presentations given at these meetings.
