What do I do if I have a code complaint about a property in my neighborhood?
If you have a complaint about a code violation, submit an online form or contact the Code Compliance Inspector at 651-322-2093.
The following process is then followed:
Step One: The Code Compliance Inspector will receive and record the complaint.
Step Two: An inspection of the property will occur to ensure there is a violation. All property violations will be documented in writing.
Step Three: A notice of the code violation is left with the resident, or on the door, by phone, or by mail.
Step Four: A date is set for re-inspection.
Step Five: The property in violation is re-inspected.
Steps Two – Five may be repeated up to three times, if necessary, to gain compliance with the City Code regulations. If City Code compliance cannot be achieved, a criminal citation may be issued with a scheduled court date.
