Nuisance Complaint
The Environmental Health Division accepts general nuisance complaints from the public. The complaint MUST be made in writing  and provide specific information regarding the complaint, including the exact location of the problem, the owner of the problem if known, a description of the complaint, the complainants name, address and telephone number in case we need to contact them. All efforts are made to keep the personal information of the complainant confidential.

The Environmental Health Division responds to complaints of environmental conditions that may pose a threat to public health.  The department will evaluate each situation and determine the exact threat and attempt to educate the persons concerned while getting them to remove or abate the nuisance condition.

If failure to comply to recommendations of the department are not followed, the Board of Health will conduct administrative hearings  ordering actions to be taken. Failure to comply with the Board of Health will result in the case being directed to the Geauga County Prosecutor's office for legal action.
