Nuisance Complaint Explanation/Summary

The LCHD addresses a variety of public health nuisance complaints occurring throughout Lawrence Co., such as garbage/trash, housing, insects, rodents, sewage, food related, etc. Upon receiving a complaint, we will perform an on-site investigation and issue an enforcement notice depending on jurisdiction and severity.  The enforcement notice will allot an amount of time for the nuisance to be resolved before a reinspection is preformed and any further action is evaluated.

***Not all nuisance complaints involve public health and, therefore,  the LCHD has limited jurisdiction.  However, we will attempt to refer you to the proper authority or organization.

***Nuisance complaints located within the city limits of Ironton, OH should be addressed to the Ironton Mayor’s Office. We can then assist as needed.
