Complaint Procedures

The Code Enforcement Officer will only investigate complaints received on a completed Complaint Form. Such complaints will state fully the causes and basis thereof. Furthermore, the Code Enforcement Officer will maintain a complaint file of all received complaints and maintain a status log of all unresolved complaints for use by Department personnel, the Planning & Zoning Commission, the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and the Board of County Commissioners. The Status Log is not for dissemination to the public.

Complaint Form

Response/Guidance

The type of response from the violator will dictate the source of additional guidance requested, either from the Prosecuting Attorney, the Board of County Commissioners, or the Planning & Zoning Commission.

If the violator does not respond, or is unable or unwilling to comply with the Code Enforcement Officers’ guidance, the offense case will be referred to the Prosecuting Attorney, the Board of County Commissioners, or the Planning & Zoning Commission, as appropriate.  The Complaint Officer will update the complainant of the status of the case, and will notify the complainant that further action by the County may require 90 days or more.
