Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement BadgeBalancing the general public’s welfare and property rights of individual owners when it comes to enforcing the City’s Codes is an often difficult assignment. Our Code Enforcement Officers have refined skills and knowledge, and participate in continuing education in order to serve you better.

The overall goal of Code Enforcement is to achieve voluntary compliance. This is accomplished by providing equitable, expeditious and effective enforcement of City Codes. If a property owner fails to voluntarily comply, the Code Enforcement Officers can pursue further action by issuing Citations and noticing hearings before the Special Master.


Per FL Statute 162.21 our Code Enforcement officer may not initiate an investigation of a potential violation of a duly enacted code or ordinance by way of an anonymous complaint.  A person who reports a potential violation of a code or ordinance must provide his or her name and address to the respective local government before an investigation may occur.

To phone in any code enforcement complaints please call 941-778-1005, extension 227, or use the Code Enforcement Complaint Form.
