Miami Lakes, FL – Governor Ron DeSantis signed Senate Bill 60 into law on June 29, 2021. This new legislation 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.
As per Florida law, effective, July 1st, Miami Lakes residents submitting code enforcement complaints via phone, or the Miami Lakes Connect mobile app will be required to provide their name, phone, and address at the time of the complaint.
The Miami Lakes Connect mobile app is available for iOS users and Android users.
