Tulare County RMA Launches Code Violation Hotline

June 30, 2010

Tulare County’s unincorporated residents can now report code compliance issues any time of the day.

Tulare County Resource Management Agency (RMA) officials announced today the launch of the “Code Violation Hotline,” a phone number set up to allow residents to report possible code violations. The phone number is 559-624-7060.

“The new hotline will allow our county residents to act immediately on potential code violations easily and conveniently,” said Jake Raper, Tulare County Resource Management Agency Director. “This is another innovative solution to improve service.”

Raper said unincorporated residents should call the hotline, report the potential code violation, leave the site address and a brief description of the potential violation. A violation investigation form will be submitted to RMA’s building inspection division for follow up. Residents can remain anonymous or request to be contacted regarding the potential code violation by leaving their name and phone number for a building official to follow up.

District Two Supervisor Pete Vander Poel, who represents the unincorporated communities of Allensworth, Alpaugh, Earlimart, Pixley, Teviston, Tipton, Richgrove, Woodville and Waukena, said RMA staff should be commended for developing the hotline.

“Customer service and responding to constituent concerns is a top priority for Tulare County,” Supervisor Vander Poel said. “This hotline will be a great benefit to Tulare County residents as well as the Resource Management Agency.”
