Leon County Board of County Commissioners
Code Enforcement Board

Conducts hearings to enforce County laws relating to environmental management (storm water, trees and landscaping), zoning and land use, control of junk accumulations in the community, building code, and mowing, etc., and imposes administrative fines and other non-criminal penalties where a violation of a code provision has occurred, with the goal of obtaining Code compliance. The purpose is to provide an equitable, expeditious, effective and inexpensive method for enforcement of local laws and to promote, protect and improve the health, safety and general welfare of the public.

Members of the Code Enforcement Board also serve as the Nuisance Abatement Board (NAB).  The NAB has the power to determine whether a building or premises is a serious and continuing danger to the public and/or occupants, which could lead to the demolition of dilapidated structures.
