Authorities of Code Compliance Officer

In carrying out their responsibilities pursuant to Florida Statutes, the Village Code, the Florida Building Code, and Miami-Dade County’s codes and ordinances, code officers have the authority to:

  • issue warning and violation notices
  • issue citations
  • issue fines as the particular case warrants

In the event a code violation is not corrected, officers are responsible to process all cases through the code compliance process. The process provides a system of citations for the imposition of fines to promote a fair, expeditious, effective, and inexpensive method of enforcing the codes. Citations may be appealed to a Special Master.
