What Is A Code Compliance Officer?
Code Compliance Officers play a vital role in keeping North Miami clean, beautiful and safe for our residents, business community and visitors. The North Miami Code Compliance Team serves as the eyes and ears of our community. They often have direct contact with residents and business owners, which cultivates meaningful relationships between the City and the community.
Though it is not state mandated, each North Miami Code Compliance Officer is certified through the Florida Association of Code Enforcement. This certification equips our local Code Officers to skillfully eliminate blight and neighborhood deterioration, while also enhancing property preservation and life safety, with the team’s “Code Cares” approach. The “Code Cares” approach encourages compliance through education and success resources, rather than penalties.
Friendly Compliance Reminders
North Miami’s Code Compliance staff carries out their responsibility of improving the health, welfare and quality of life of our residents through enforcement of the laws and codes adopted by the City. A major component of this process is to provide a timely response to reports of potential violations by community members. Such a response often includes an in-person inspection.
