STR Complaints

STR Complaint Portal

The Talbot County Code Enforcement Division addresses violations of STR regulations. Civil Penalties can be as high as $1,000.00 per day for each violation of Talbot County Code.

When a complaint is received an incident number is created along with the relevant information concerning the complaint. Follow up investigations are completed by Code Enforcement Officers for corrective or enforcement action.

During normal working hours any STR violation report can be forwarded directly to Code Enforcement:

Mike Duell, Chief Code Compliance Officer- 410-770-8035,

Duane Gottschalk, Code Compliance Officer- 410-770-8044,

Code Enforcement Officers may not be available 24/7 and many incidents can be investigated after the fact. STR complaints after normal hours can also be reported to the 24/7 STR Hotline, 410-819-2284.

Talbot County Sheriff’s Office should be called if the matter involves a criminal act. They maintain an electronic notification system which electronically forwards call information daily to Code Enforcement for any incident a Sheriff’s Deputy responds to such as a Noise Ordinance violation. The non-emergency number for the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office is 410-822-1020.

Please call 9-1-1 if there is an immediate threat to your health, safety or welfare.
