FWIW, generally speaking you cannot find out who filed the complaint until
the issue has been resolved. After that, you should be able to go down to
the zoning commission office and find out who filed the complaint. A similar
situation happened to me probably 10 years or so ago. After it was over, I
found out who complained, and paid them a visit. I was not antagonistic, but
I made it VERY clear if someone has a problem with me or what I am doing,
they best talk to me FIRST!!! I made enough of a stink that the zoning
person remembered me when I actually did have some non-working cars in the
"parking lot" at the back of the house a couple of years ago. I got rid of
them (which I had been procrastinating doing), called the zoning people, and
that was the end of it.
