Who we are!
The City of Minneola Code Enforcement Department is
responsible for preserving the quality of life and value of both
public and private properties. Our actions serve as a catalyst
in preserving a high standard of living by mitigating conditions
which may threaten lives, health, safety and general welfare of
the residents of this city. The Code Enforcement Department
provides a comprehensive inspection system to respond to citizen
complaints and enforce minimum standards ordinance, zoning, land
development and sign regulations. Code Enforcement works closely
with Planning & Zoning Department and the City Clerk’s Office to
enforce business and occupational licenses within the city.
Can I remain anonymous when reporting a code violation?
Yes, it is not the policy of the city to require any
personal information when registering a complaint. Remember that
all information you choose to provide to the city including
names, phone numbers and email addresses are subject to public

receive a written notice or a verbal warning. If the violation
is not corrected within the allocated time the officer will
issue a formal notice and the case may then be referred to be
heard in front of the Code Enforcement Board for further action.

importantly the residents of Minneola as a whole.
