Egyptian Health Department Local Nuisance Program
Local Nuisance complaints are accepted regarding all environmental programs. The complaints are investigated for their potential health hazard and/or violation of city/county ordinances or State regulations. Once determined as a health hazard, cases occurring within city limits are referred to that city’s officials for enforcement. Cases outside corporate limits are granted a corrective time period. If the owner fails to correct the nuisance, the case is referred to the State’s Attorney for enforcement.
