Code Compliance: What happens . . . .

When a complaint is received by Code Compliance, an Officer is assigned to investigate the complaint.

If a violation exists, notification of the violation is issued regarding the condition. A specific, reasonable time will be imposed to correct any violations.

Voluntary compliance is the foremost goal of code enforcement. In cases where voluntary compliance is not achieved, Code Compliance Officers have the option to impose civil or criminal penalties.

The most common violations addressed by Code Compliance include (but are not limited to):

  • Garbage
  • Outdoor storage
  • Parking on an unimproved surface
  • Inoperable vehicles
  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Building without permits

Other areas of enforcement include:

  • Roosters
  • Occupancy of vehicles on private property
  • Vacant structures
  • Fire damaged structures

Animal complaints to include barking dogs and other animal related nuisances are reported to Clark County Animal Control (see link below)
