ZONING COMPLAINTS:

Complaints are received from citizens regarding violations of the various codes of Wisner Township.  Residents may call any township board member or the zoning administrator to verify whether their neighbors have received permits for construction or simply to report a violation they might have observed.  The name, address and phone number of the complainant is required. The complainant's identifying information is required in order to make a complaint. This information may be requested by the violator and will be furnished upon request.   

COMPLAINT FORM HERE


When complaints are received, a friendly letter is sent to the person allegedly accused of violating the ordinance explaining that a complaint has been received.  The complaint is described to the homeowner and the appropriate ordinance section is sited.  The resident is then asked to consider whether they are indeed in violation and if they are, to please correct the situation.  If this first step is not effective and it is determined that a violation indeed exists, an official Notice of Violation is sent to the homeowner.  If the problem remains unresolved, a summons is issued by the township attorney, which then goes to circuit court.  Most complaints are remedied by the first step of this procedure.
