Dunedin's Division of Code Enforcement addresses a variety of property issues in order to maintain and better the quality of life for our residents. Violations of the City's code, Florida Building Code and International Property Maintenance Code affect the community's health, safety, environment and property values.
Balancing the general public's welfare and property rights of individual owners when it comes to enforcing the City's codes is an often difficult assignment. Our Code Enforcement Inspectors have refined skills and knowledge, and participate in continuing education in order to serve you better.
The overall goal of Dunedin's Division of Code Enforcement is to achieve voluntary compliance. If a property owner fails to voluntarily comply, the Code Enforcement Inspectors can pursue further action before the Dunedin Code Enforcement Board.
The City of Dunedin follows Municipal Code of Ordinances. A link to Chapter 22 - Code Enforcement can be found here: Municode - Dunedin, Florida - Chapter 22 Code Enforcement
YOUR OWN PROPERTY: The City's Code Enforcement Inspectors are happy to work with a resident / property owner to bring their property into compliance with City guidelines. If you need our assistance, please feel free to contact our Department via phone or email (addresses below). Please keep in mind the Inspectors are normally out of the office during the day on inspections throughout the City, and it is usually best to make an appointment.
REPORT A VIOLATION: You may also report a code enforcement violation by email or phone. Issues such as abandoned or inoperative vehicles, excessive litter or overgrowth, our unsafe/vacant housing are regularly inspected. When reporting, please give as much detail as possible, including the address (of violation) and nature of the problem.
Your emails and voicemails will be returned by one of us.

Volunteer citizens (seven members and two alternates) comprise the Dunedin Code Enforcement Board, and meet the first Tuesday of each month to consider code violation cases brought by the City. The Board considers all code enforcement violations based on testimony and evidence presented at the hearing by the City and the Respondent (property owner in violation). The Dunedin Code Enforcement Board's complete Rules of Procedure can be found here DCEB Rules of Procedure.
Thank you for helping keep your City of Dunedin beautiful!
