A Code Enforcement Officer will investigate Zoning and/or Building complaints concerning land use or building issues. Examples of these violations might be: failure to comply with conditions of approval for Conditional Use Permits; junk yards, inoperable vehicles, violations for setbacks; no building permits issued on a construction site, etc. Public Nuisance complaints such as weeds or illegal dumping will also be handled through this office.
Substantiated violations are enforced within the limitations of the Canyon County Zoning Ordinance, Building Code Ordinance and Public Nuisance Ordinance and could result in court action (criminal misdemeanor citation or civil court proceedings). It is the goal of the Canyon County Development Services Department to work with the public in reaching an amicable agreement to resolve issues, keeping the public's health, safety and welfare in the forefront of any action.
Any complaints in relation to barking dogs; unwanted cats or dogs; deceased, sick or injured dogs or cats; neglected animals or animal bites should be reported to the Animal Control Office. If these occur after office hours, contact Sheriff's Dispatch.
