For violations on properties located outside of the City limits please contact Pinal County Development Services or the city in which the property is located.
Persons may file a code violation complaint by the following methods:
- Complete the City’s Service Request to Report a Code Violation
Code Violation Complaint Instructions
Code violation complaints must include a description of the potential violation (photos are great), and the address or location (in the case of vacant property) of the violation. Persons are encouraged to provide their contact information (name, phone number, email) when filing a code enforcement complaint in order that Code Enforcement staff can follow up with complainants when necessary. However, due to public information laws, this information is required to be released upon receipt of a public information request.
The code enforcement process initially involves an inspection of the property to verify whether a code violation exists. If it is determined that a code violation exists, the property owner and/or tenant is given written notice of the violation and a specific timeframe to come into compliance. If the property owner/tenant fails to bring the violation into compliance the City may pursue civil or criminal charges or the direct abatement of the violation. Sometimes this can be a lengthy process (especially if the person in violation does not voluntarily take care of the problem) so please be patient. If you want an update on the status of the violation you can contact code enforcement staff.
