How do I go about getting a property owner to remove junk from their property? Why doesn't the county do something?
You may come into the Planning Department Office and complete a Request for Investigation form (a two page form). The information on this form will be kept confidential unless the matter goes to court. Once this form is completed the County will investigate and determine if the property owner has more than 1,000 square feet of junk.
You may also request this form to be mailed to you by calling our department at (209)966-5151 or download it online from our Applications.
