Code Enforcement Officers are also employed by the Building Division. The officer enforces a broad range of land use ordinances to assure that a healthy, safe and attractive environment is maintained for DeLand's residents. Code enforcement services are provided in response to citizen complaints, but work efforts also include proactive enforcement and educational components designed to promote compliance with adopted regulations. When necessary, compliance may be achieved through the City's Code Enforcement Special Magistrate who has the authority to levy a fine of up to $250.00 per day (more for repeat violations). For certain violations, Code Enforcement Officers may issue citations or "tickets" instead of processing a violation through the Code Enforcement Special Magistrate. In general, tickets are reserved for more serious or
repeat violations. For more information, please contact Frances Jackson at (386) 626-7028.
