Issues are often resolved without City action when neighbors discuss their concerns directly with one another.
If making contact with the responsible person is not successful, contact East Metro Mediation at 503-618-3247 or Mediation@GreshamOregon.gov.
A skilled mediator can help clarify issues so the people involved can move forward. This free service has helped many difficult cases find mutual cooperation.

If you believe there is a violation in your neighborhood or near your business:
The City will not accept a complaint if any of the above information is missing.
No, the City does not
accept anonymous complaints, but the source of the complaint is kept private.
However, the City may be ordered to reveal this information if a case leads to
a judicial proceeding or it may be requested through a public records request.
You may follow the progress of a case through our
case tracking system.
This remedy is typically used for violations more than 45 days in non-compliance or for properties with repeat offenses.
Subject to available budget resources, this remedy is used as one of the last resorts where the City requires the property owner to take action to abate the nuisance.
The assistance of the city attorney is requested when the property owner fails to voluntarily comply. The City Attorney may file criminal or civil cases against the responsible parties. This rarely occurs, and usually requires City Council approval.
