The Code Enforcement Division enforces codes to ensure the beauty and character of the city by responding to citizen complaints and self-initiated enforcement.
Report a Concern
Report a concern by contacting our hotline number 772-388-4436 option 1. It is available 24/7 to leave a detailed message for Code Enforcement Staff or to report a potential violation. Messages are followed up by the next business day.
Code Enforcement staff shall, to the greatest extent possible by Florida law, keep the identities of people who report violations confidential. However, we must have a caller’s information regarding vacant lots overgrowing onto improved properties in order to follow through with those complaints. In accordance with the Sunshine Law, all complaints are public record including the person’s name filing the complaint.
Complaints can also be submitted using our Online Complaint Form.
