The existence of dangerous buildings are a violation of the Clay County Code of Ordinances Section 150.41, "Uniform Code for the Abatement of Dangerous Buildings", and allows for the abatement (i.e. action of lessening in severity or intensity) of dangerous buildings within the unincorporated areas of Clay County.
The Code of Ordinances identifies the definition of a "Dangerous Building" under Section 150.43.
To report a potential dangerous building, please contact the Clay County Planning & Zoning Department at (816) 407-3380 or E-Mail.
The Clay County Planning & Zoning Department has home rule jurisdiction or control over only the unincorporated areas of the County, or those areas outside of city limits. If you live within an incorporated city, you will need to contact your city regarding any planning and zoning matters as only they have control inside their city boundaries.
