Environmental violations in Lakeland may be reported by calling City Hall at 867-2717, E-mailing CityHall@lakelandtn.org or stopping by City Hall.
Basically environmental violations include items such as excessive junk, disabled/derelict vehicles, high grass/weeds, recreational vehicles/boats etc. parked in the front yard etc. We also appreciate reports on erosion control violations, hazards etc. Residents are encouraged to call or e-mail if they have any questions about what constitutes a violation.
All violation reports are independently investigated by City personnel to determine if a violation exists. If it is determined that there is a violation, the resident or business or contractor is contacted and advised of the violation and provided time to correct the violations. If the violation is not corrected, further action will depend on the type of violation.
Persons reporting violations do not need to provide their names etc., although it may be helpful in investigating the problem.
