This department handles nuisance complaints and non-construction related code violations or complaints. Examples of these types of complaints include household garbage in your yard, junk cars, overgrown lawns, scrap tires, loose animals and other issues not meeting local property standards. We carry out rules set forth in the International Property Maintenance Code, which Walker County adopted on February 19, 2015, along with the Junk Vehicle Ordinance of 1989 and Public Nuisance Ordinance of 2004.
We are located in the Walker County Local Government Services building at 122 Highway 95 in Rock Spring. Our phone number is 706-638-4048.
Did you know you can report an issue with codes, roads or animals on a computer, tablet or smartphone? Simply visit our iWorQ Citizen Portal to request service. Once you enter the issue, you can track the progress in the portal.
Along with codes, roads and animals, users can also ask general questions, inquire about renting a county facility and alert the county of concerns with permitting and inspections, drainage and the landfill.
A key feature of the portal gives users the ability to upload and send a picture of their problem to Walker County.
The Litter Crew works about a dozen roads each week with one county employee supervising two to three inmates. Between 2017 and 2019, an average of 129,754 pounds of roadside trash was picked up each year.
