To file a complaint, you will need the address of the property where the violation exists. By submitting a complaint, you acknowledge and consent to the information you submit, including your identity, to be treated as a public record pursuant to 22.7(18)(a). Linn County Planning & Development's jurisdiction includes un-incorporated areas of Linn County.

In order to make a complaint, you must be or represent a tenant in the rental unit where the violation exists. In all cases, you must notify your landlord of your complaint in writing (retaining a copy of the letter) and allow the landlord reasonable time to respond/remedy to the complaint before you notify Linn County Planning & Development or City Staff.
