The Code Compliance Division is responsible for ensuring that people comply with County Ordinances and the Land Development Code. The primary goal for this section is "compliance."
This is achieved by helping people understand the property laws and codes, and why it is best for everyone in the county if people do their best to meet these requirements. We all need to do our part to keep Citrus County a great place to live and work.
The Code Compliance Officers respond to calls from citizens about possible Code violations and they respond to other County and State departments when they need help with Enforcement. Usually, and in most cases, the Officers notify property owners of a violation on their property and a time period is set to remedy the violation. If violations are not corrected, the issue is heard and considered by our Code Compliance Special Master. The Special Master can impose significant fines on property owners who fail to comply with an order.
The Code Compliance Division also investigates reports of illegal dumping. Illegal dumping and littering are criminal acts, and when violators are found and identified, Code Compliance staff pursue full prosecution by working with the Sheriff's Office Investigators, County Solid Waste Staff, and County and State Attorney Offices.
