DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES
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, ordinances, zoning, land development, and sign regulations. Code Enforcement works closely with the Fire Department, Law Enforcement, Planning & Zoning Department, Building Department and the City Clerk’s Office to enforce business, rental, and occupational licenses within the city. In addition, the Code Enforcement Department provides Crossing Guard services to all the elementary schools within the City.
To report a possible code violation in your neighborhood you can call 394-3598 ext 152 or email it to Richard Mojica, firstname.lastname@example.org Under Florida law, email addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing. By Florida Statute 162.06-1b A code inspector may not initiate enforcement proceedings for a potential violation of a duly enacted code or ordinance by way of an anonymous complaint. A person who reports a potential violation of a code or an ordinance must provide his or her name and address to the respective local government before an enforcement proceeding may occur.
"ATTENTION PROPERTY OWNERS, AGENTS, CUSTODIANS, LESSEES, AND OCCUPANTS OF REAL PROPERTY WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS OF THE CITY OF MINNEOLA:
You are hereby notified that you are required by law to cut and prevent the excessive accumulation of weeds, underbrush, grass or other dead and living plant life upon your improved property; to remove any trash, debris, refuse, inoperable or abandoned vehicles or applicants, or other nocuous matter located on any property owned, controlled or occupied by you in the City of Minneola; and also to repair, restore or demolish any unfit or unsafe structure located upon such property; and that upon your failure to do so, the City of Minneola will institute nuisance abatement proceedings against your property and cause such nuisance to be abated. The cost of such abatement will constitute a special assessment lien against the property on which the nuisance is located. Such special assessment lien shall be coequal with the lien of all state, county, district, and municipal taxes and superior in dignity to mortgages and all other liens, irrespective of the date of the recording of the municipal lien or the date of the recording of any mortgage or any other lien on real property. A failure to pay said lien, even such lien upon homestead property, may result in a loss of title to your property."
