Reporting a Violation

When You Notice a Violation

When violations are noticed within the Village, it is the duty of all residents to report them as soon as possible. Although the Village is patrolled frequently by the Enforcement Officer, unreported violations have a lower chance of being corrected in a prompt manor.

When reporting a violation to the Enforcement Officer, please note the cross streets or the address of the violation. Code Enforcement violations can be reported to Duane Miller at 269-849-9343 or email at

Violation Complaints

Violations are addressed in a confidential, friendly, and understanding way. Upon receiving a complaint, the Enforcement Officer will verify that a problem does exist and notify the property owner to explain the problem and suggest possible solutions.

The property owner is then given time to take care of the violation. While most property owners comply after the first notification, those who don’t may face enforcement action.
