Matteson is a village in Cook County Illinois and a south suburb of Chicago. The population is estimated at 19,000. Matteson was settled in the late 1800s by primarily people of German Descent. The village was incorporated in 1889, beginning with only 500 residents. Matteson has an area of 9.32 square miles of land and 0.034 square miles of water. The village's namesake is Joel Aldrich Matteson, who served as Illinois' tenth governor from 1853 to 1857. As the village developed, the plumbing, electrification, and Illinois Central Railroad developed as well. By the end of the 1960s the development of the school district resulted in a significant population growth leading into the village we know and love today.
The Building Services Division of the Community Development Department administers the Villages codes and ordinances related to construction and property maintenance and assists in the enforcement of zoning regulations. Building Services licenses contractors, issues permits and performs inspections for construction, repair, alteration and maintenance of buildings and structures. Building Services also administers the property maintenance code by performing inspections of residential and commercial properties upon change of use, ownership or tenancy, annual inspections of multi-family buildings containing four or more dwelling units and regular exterior property maintenance inspections.
Inspection requests should be made 24 hours in advance of when the inspection is needed.

As is relates to property maintenance, the Division is concerned with four major objectives: public health and safety, education, public service and community appearance. The Division ensures that all environmental nuisances in residential and commercial neighborhoods are eliminated and that substandard and deteriorated structures become compliant with minimum property maintenance code requirements. The Property Maintenance Inspector addresses items such as tall grass/weeds (6 inches or greater), deteriorated houses, address numbers, yard maintenance, outdoor storage, inoperable vehicles, and garbage/refuse storage.
