From the Ask Joe file a follow up tonight to a question we addressed last week about clean up efforts in Sun Valley.
Tom Gargus wrote asking what Washoe County is doing to enforce the nuisance code in Sun Valley ?
I did get in touch with Bob Webb, planning manger for Washoe County.
Webb says code enforcement is complaint driven. So if they get a specific complaint they go out and investigate. In the past year they've investigated 81 cases in sun valley and they say they have a 90 to 95 percent compliance rate. That is they are able to get homeowners to clean up their yards on their own almost all of the time.
So what it comes down to is if you have a complaint, call the county's code enforcement number at 328-6106 and file a report. Give them the specific information so they can go out and take a look .
