Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement

The purpose of the Code Enforcement Division is to promote, protect and improve the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Suwannee County through an effective code enforcement program. The Department has authority throughout the unincorporated area of the County. Please note Code Enforcement does not handle complaints for property or situations inside any city limits. Contact each city directly for more information.

The Department’s workload is principally complaint generated. The Department receives a substantial number of complaints each year concerning alleged violations of the County’s various regulations. Each one is investigated to determine whether a violation exists. 

The primary functions of the Code Enforcement Department are to educate the public in code issues and to work with the citizens to achieve code compliance. The Department promotes voluntary compliance by establishing partnerships with citizens, community groups and other agencies. We are committed to professional code enforcement that is responsive to our citizens. In addition, officers proactively enforce regulations as their case load allows. Officers also work on weekends.
