Yellowstone County Code Enforcement is a complaint-based response program. Complaints concerning potential violations are received in our office and an officer is assigned to investigate and determine compliance or noncompliance with the zoning code or Community Decay ordinance. Each case is processed in a timely manner as possible. Properties in violation are generally allowed a minimum of 30 days to achieve compliance. To report a complaint, please call 406-652-2050 or email
