Standard Case Progression
The ultimate goal of Code Enforcement is to work together with residents to gain voluntary compliance. The flowchart above is the standard progression of how cases are processed. Although Code Enforcement Officers have discretionary power to vary from this progression, due process must still be given to the violator per Florida State Statute. The severity of the violation, the number of previous violations and the effort made to come into compliance by the violator are all factors considered in the amount of time given to comply.
