I want to report a property maintenance problem in my neighborhood but I don't want anyone to know I called. Do I have to give you my name?

Your identity is protected by the government code and is not released to anyone outside of staff. Code enforcement should have your name and phone number to provide the best follow-up action possible for every complaint. Many times we need to contact you to confirm either continuing problems or that the violation has been eliminated to your satisfaction. It is also important to be able to contact you in the event we find that the “problem” is not a violation enforceable, maybe, not even a violation at all. 


If you are anonymous and we’re unable to let you know these circumstances, you will be left with the negative impression that we have ignored your complaint.
