Code Enforcement

The function of the Code Enforcement Department is to enforce the local County Ordinances as it relates to land use and property maintenance. Good code enforcement can improve the quality of our neighborhood, protect property values and the environment and keep Gadsden County a safe and desirable community.

Specifically, the Code Enforcement Officer concentrates on the investigation and abatement of complaints involving land use (zoning), housing conditions, abandoned vehicles, signs, fences and general public nuisances. Unlike the Building Department, which enforces codes pertaining to new construction, Code Enforcement focuses on existing structures and neighborhood blight.
