Obtain a complaint form by visiting the Eric Rood Administrative Center, calling the Code Compliance Division at (530) 470-2788 or by downloading the form by clicking here. When submitting a complaint the reporting party must include their name, and phone number as anonymous or illegible complaints will not be processed. Reporting party information remains confidential except when disclosure is required by the Court.
I don’t want anyone to know who filed the complaint. Why do I have to sign the form?
Code Compliance’s policy, established by the Board of Supervisors, is that cases are generated through a formal complaint process, or through a referral from the Board of Supervisors or other agency. That said, reporting party confidentiality is of great importance to the Code Compliance Division. Our office staff creates the case files that the Officers carry on site, and these files contain copies of the complaint forms-with all identifying information removed-so even the Officers have no knowledge regarding the origin of the complaint. The original complaint form remains in our office, in locked storage. Only when requested by the Court will this be information be released.
Will I be contacted regarding the complaint I’ve filed?
No. Reporting parties names are kept confidential, even from the Officers who work the individual cases. This means they have no knowledge of who filed a complaint or how to reach them.
