What happens when I report a potential violation?
When a code violation is reported, we open a case and work towards resolving the violation through a process of education, inspection and notices. If we receive a complaint that does not fall under our scope of enforcement or jurisdiction, we will send a referral to the appropriate agency for action.
Can I file an anonymous complaint?
You may file an anonymous complaint by phone, fax or mail. Please do not include your name and contact information anywhere on the complaint. If you provide your name or other personal information it may be disclosed, even if you request to remain anonymous. All information collected by this agency is made available to the public as mandated by the Public Records Act.
What can I do if I get a notice and do not understand the violation?
Call your Officer. Every notice/administrative citation provides the issuing Officer’s contact information. Code Enforcement is here to work with you to ensure that our community remains a safe and healthy place to live.

What happens if the property does not come into compliance?
There are times when voluntary compliance is not achieved. Depending on the nature of the violation, the next steps might include an administrative citation, civil penalties, abatement, or the property owner could be subject to criminal prosecution in the Justice Court of Clark County.
