Inspector Bike Program

Aurora became the first municipality in the Chicago Metropolitan area to embark on a program where Property Code Inspectors and Parking Meter Checkers perform enforcement duties from bicycles.

Since its inception, the program has been extremely successful and affords Inspectors the ability to interact in a more direct and personal way with the public. It also affords Inspectors an improved vantage point for more readily identifying violations.

Mayor Weisner has placed a solid emphasis on the environment, and the City’s bike program was an early example of his active commitment to lead City operations in Aurora toward green initiatives.
