Churchill County Code 8.12 details the procedure to address Nuisance Complaints regarding structures and activities alleged to be a nuisance that are a threat to health or safety and are an obstruction to the free use of property. It is presumed that, as defined in NRS 40.140, an agricultural activity conducted on farmland, consistent with usual and customary agricultural practice, does not constitute a nuisance unless the activity has substantial adverse effects on public health and safety. A Nuisance Complaint can be downloaded and completed, which shall be filed with the County Clerk alleging the existence of a nuisance as defined in NRS 40.140. The County Clerk shall notify the Board of County Commissioners at the next regularly scheduled Commissioners’ meeting and the board shall then fix a date to hear proof of the complainant and of the owner occupant of the real property whereon the alleged nuisance is claimed to exist, not less than thirty (30) days nor more than forty (40) days subsequent to the filing of the complaint. A notice of the hearing date shall be published at least once a week for two (2) weeks preceding the date fixed for the hearing in a newspaper of general circulation published in the county. The complainant and the owner occupant of the property shall be notified by certified mail of the time and place of the hearing and the nature of the complaint.
