What happens after a complaint is received by the City?

Upon receipt of a complaint, a Code Enforcement Officer will visit the property to determine whether there is a violation of Nampa City Code. If so, the Code Enforcement Officer will contact the property owner regarding the violation and attempt to obtain voluntary compliance through communication and courtesy and followup notices. It is the City of Nampa's experience that this course of action is highly effective in obtaining compliance; however, when voluntary compliance does not occur and a violation persists, the City of Nampa Code Enforcement will mail and/or post a notice ordering the property owner to abate the violation within a specified time period. Absent a timely response to this notice, Code Enforcement may then proceed to abate the violation, assess the costs against the property owner by tax lien, and/or may issue a uniform citation and forward the case for civil or criminal prosecution.
