As of July 1, 2021, Florida law (Senate Bill 60) prohibits code inspectors from initiating investigations of potential violations of codes and ordinances by way of anonymous complaints. It also requires persons reporting potential violations to provide contact information before an investigation occurs. If the code enforcement officer has reason to believe the alleged violation presents an imminent threat to public health, safety, or welfare or imminent destruction of habitat or sensitive resources, then the prohibition does not apply.Miami Lakes Connect Web Portal
A Code Officer initiates a case when:
- a violation is observed.
- a resident alerts them to a violation (by phone, email, online).
- a town staff/department initiates a case.
Complaints from identifiable sources are inspected and verified by a code officer and if a violation exists, the code officer takes further action toward obtaining voluntary compliance.
