Nuisance Resolution Process:
The process of handling a code violation through the city isn’t as quick as some people might think. But, if your attempt at being a friendly neighbor hasn’t worked, here are the steps and procedures of a complaint.
1. Contact the City of Nixa’s Code Compliance Department. If this is an animal complaint, please contact Animal Control at 417-582-1030.
2. Complaint is investigated by our Code Compliance Officer and then either confirmed or denied.
3. If confirmed, then the property owner or current occupant is notified of the violation and is given approximately 7 days to remediate the nuisance.
4. If the nuisance still exists after the typical 7-day period, either a hearing will be scheduled to abate the violation or, depending on the severity of the violation, a ticket will be issued.
