Report of an Abandoned Vehicle
This form has been modified since it was saved. Please review all fields before submitting.
The Code Compliance Division administers the Abandoned Vehicle Abatement (AVA) Program for the County. To report an abandoned vehicle outside City limits, complete this form or call the AVA Hotline at 530-470-2750. If the vehicle is within City limits please call the appropriate City office.
The more information about the vehicle and location you can provide the better we can serve you. Code Compliance staff is normally able to tag a vehicle within 3 business days of the vehicle being reported. Please be aware under California law the vehicle will not be towed for a minimum of ten days unless there are public safety concerns.
If you have questions or comments please feel free to leave a message on the AVA Hotline at 530-470-2750. Messages are checked daily.
