What Happens After You File a Complaint

Complaints are initially investigated with an establishment inspection or a drive-by investigation on an outdoor property complaint.

The inspector will generally contact the establishment manager or property resident in person, if it appears one is available, and then follow up by sending a letter to the responsible party giving a specified period of time to abate the problem.

Follow-up inspections will be done for non-compliance, with further legal action when it is deemed necessary.
