Washoe County Code Compliance provides sensitive, courteous, and efficient services designed to ensure a good quality of life for all unincorporated Washoe County residents and property owners. These services protect the health, safety and welfare of County residents through fair and impartial enforcement of the Washoe County Business, Liquor and Gaming License Code (WCC Chapter 25), the Nuisance Code (WCC Chapter 50), and the Development Code (WCC Chapter 110). Enforcement emphasizes voluntary compliance, followed when necessary by proper legal procedures.  These legal procedures are principally through the County’s Administrative Enforcement Code, but may result in a misdemeanor criminal action or in civil action through a Court, if warranted.
