Code Enforcement

The City’s Code Enforcement is a division of the Planning Department and is headed by a code enforcement officer which enforces compliance with various city regulations (codes). This allows citizens to maintain and improve their property values as well as the quality of life in the community. Citizens issued code enforcement violations may eventually have their case heard before a special magistrate in a hearing should they not voluntarily comply with regulations.



To File a Complaint:

Call (850) 892-8571 ext. 118

  1. The complainant must provide their name, address, contact information, and detailed information about the complaint including location address and property owner.
  2. An inspection of the site is conducted to determine if a violation exists; if no code violation is found, the case is closed.
  3. If the complaint is valid, the notification process begins in accordance with Florida Statute, Chapter 162.12 - by certified mail, hand delivery, and/or posting of the property and public notice.
  4. The case will remain open until compliance is achieved, voluntarily or through Special Magistrate.
