Who to Call - Consult our Who to Call list to reach the right agency. Codes Compliance is just one of several agencies that provide enforcement services.
Provide an Address/Location - No matter which report method you choose, provide the address and a description of your concern. If there is no address, provide a location description such as "abandoned car on vacant lot that is one lot east of the house at 1485 66th Terrace North".
Registering Complaints Anonymously Under State Law
In most cases you may report a code violation anonymously. Any personal information you provide becomes part of the public record, which any other citizen has the right to review. Personal information is only required from a tenant or renter requesting an inspection of the inside of a rented home or apartment unit. In that case, the name and telephone number of the tenant requesting the inspection will become part of the public record.
Any written or email material received or generated by the City Staff or Council members becomes public record and state law requires the record be made available for inspection by any citizen who requests it. This means it is impossible to provide anonymity to anyone who writes to the City via email or letter containing any personal information.
