Code Compliance

Anonymous Complaint Notice

Florida Statute Chapter 125.69 and 162.21 prohibits code compliance officers from initiating a code compliance action based on an anonymous complaint. Individuals wishing to submit a complaint are required to provide their name and address. An exception was provided permitting anonymous complaints only if a code officer has reason to believe the violation presents an imminent threat to public health, safety, or welfare or there is a threat of imminent destruction of habitat or sensitive resources.

How the Code Violation Process Works

Inspections are made resulting from complaints received. Once a complaint is received, an exterior property inspection is conducted based upon the complaint. If the complaint is valid, a violation notice is issued to the owner of the property.

If a violation notice is issued, the County gives the property owner time to make corrections. If violations are not corrected, and after consultation with the County Attorney's office, legal proceedings can be initiated against the property owner.
