The Purpose of Code Enforcement
Code enforcement plays an important role in maintaining attractive neighborhoods and the quality of life of Kuna's citizens through the enforcement of the zoning, sanitation, and nuisance ordinances. The city has adopted standards and codes to ensure public health, safety, and general welfare; and to sustain long-term investment in the community by property owners and businesses. Please note that the city does not enforce rules of individual Homeowners Associations.
The city works closely with our dedicated Code Enforcement Officer, Deputy Zins of the Kuna Police Department who is on shift Monday through Thursday. It is extremely helpful to provide your name and phone number when submitting a Code Enforcement complaint so that Deputy Zins may contact you if necessary. Information provided on the Code Enforcement complaint form (name, address, phone number, etc.) remains anonymous unless for some reason the individual in violation of Kuna City Code is charged by the Ada County Prosecutor and the case proceeds through the court system.
Problems Solvable by Code Enforcement
Code enforcement operates on a complaint-driven basis, in other words, it is reactive. Code enforcement can help resolve problems such as:
- Business activities within a residential zone;
- Accumulation of junk, trash, or garbage;
- Outdoor storage of junk or debris;
- Accumulation of weeds, or open areas of dry vegetation;
- Yard/garage sales every weekend;
- Farm animals in residential areas;
- Bushes, shrubs, trees, or fences blocking vision at street or driveway intersections;
- Persons living in recreational vehicles; and
- Trailers (campers, RVs, utility trailers) parked on street for over 72 hours.
