The Rockledge City Council has adopted City Codes, which are designed to address blight and nuisances and to help maintain a clean environment for all citizens in our community. These codes are the Code of Ordinances and the Land Development Regulations.
The mission of the Code Enforcement Department is to promote and maintain a safe and desirable living and working environment. The Department helps maintain and improve the quality of our community by administering a fair and unbiased compliance program to correct issues of municipal codes and land use requirements.
Our Code Enforcement Officer is responsible for investigating complaints of violations or by initiating investigations observed while in the field. Complaints are generally handled within two to five working days of receipt. Emergency situations, which may be a safety threat to the community, are handled immediately. Investigations where a violation is present will result in one or all of the following: a courtesy notice to the occupant, a written Notice of Violation, or possible further action by the Code Enforcement Board.
The most important action the property owner can take is to comply with the violation within the period required by Code. Our primary goal is voluntary compliance, which saves both time and money for all parties involved.
