General Complaint Form

The Jackson County Code Enforcement Division was established by the Jackson County Board of County Commissioners per Ordinance No. 06-22 in October of 2006. The Code Enforcement Officer is certified by the Florida Association of Code Enforcement in Level I, Level II, and Level III. The Department mainly deals with nuisance violations and permitting with the main goals being to promote a safe and desirable living and working environment and to ultimately gain voluntary compliance by violators.

It is the duty of the code enforcement officer to issue citations and initiate enforcement proceedings of the various codes and ordinances. If a violation is found , the enforcement officer first notifies the violator and gives them a reasonable time frame to correct the violation. If not corrected in the allotted time, the violation is brought before the Codes Enforcement Board for a ruling. All testimony shall be under oath and shall be recorded. The Codes Enforcement Board shall take testimony from the Code Enforcement Officer and alleged violator and from such other witnesses as may be called by the respective sides.

At the conclusion of the hearing, the Board will issue an order on the matter and the alleged violator is to be notified of the order in writing within ten days of the hearing. Failure to comply with the order issued can lead to further action being taken by the Board, including fines or recording of property liens. Information regarding the Jackson County Code Enforcement Division can be found in Chapter 29 of the Jackson County Ordinances.
