Report a Possible Code Violation

  1. Description

    If you would like to report a possible code violation, complete this form in its entirety and be as specific as possible. The fields with an asterisk (*) are required. If you are a renter and have a complaint about your rental unit, complete the Report Problems with Your Rental Unit form on the Rental Property Licensing page.

  2. Information related to the complaint is confidential and will not be released to the public. You do have the option to remain anonymous; however, the Code Enforcement Official may need additional information to address and/or investigate your complaint.

  3. Reporting the correct address is crucial. Example: 2530 Main St NW. If the location is a vacant lot, provide the block number or the direction from a known address. Example: "Vacant lot on the west side of 2530 Main St NW." NOT: "On the corner of Main and 1st".

  4. Indicate specific violations and/or issues. Example: junk car in yard, dilapidated garage, tall grass, or junk in yard.

    Data that identifies individuals who report violations of laws concerning the use of real property are classified as confidential data under the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act. The City of Elk River may collect such data from complainants. The identities of individuals who register complaints about the use of real property will not be provided to the public, but an individual who is potentially subject to criminal or civil penalties for an alleged violation may have the right to obtain the identities of complainants if their due process rights so require.
