Making a complaintWater Heater - Not To Code

Code violations generally consist of uses or structures without proper permits or authorizations from the County. Use the County's Online Complaint Form to submit a code violation complaint about a property. Please be specific about the property affected. If you do not know the address please describe its location as accurately as possible and where the violation(s) exists (nearest cross road, across the street from, landmarks, etc.). Enforcement Officers will make every effort to pursue the concerns you have presented and will contact you if additional information is needed. Your name and contact information will be kept confidential to the extent legally entitled.
