Nuisance Inspections

The Health District accepts general nuisance complaints from the public. The complainant must provide specific information regarding the complaint, including but not limited to: the exact location of the problem, the owner of the problem if applicable, details of the situation, and their name, address and telephone number in case we need to contact them. The personal information (name address, telephone) given is not passed on to anyone other than a court of jurisdiction when the Judge would request that information.

 

Complaints accepted include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following as detailed in the City Ordinances. To view these sections, please access the Codified Ordinances of the City of Warren online. This is a complex web document, so be sure to review the Walter H.
