Code Violation Complaints
Residents may lodge a complaint by calling the Code Enforcement Department (248) 546-4074, or making a complaint in person at the Building Department located on the main floor of City Hall.  All complaints are kept confidential unless otherwise advised.

Please be advised that compliants, violations, and tickets take time to process, be issued, and more. Patience is asked for those awaiting a result of a complaint they may have filed, however; if a resident does have a question or would like an updated, they are encouraged to call the Code Enforcement Department.
