Operational Procedure Changes (Hurricane Ian) 

  • Code Enforcement Department is currently open Monday-Friday 7:30 AM-4:00 PM 
  • Hearings (including mitigations) scheduled for October, November, and December have been cancelled and will be rescheduled. New notices to appear will be sent to property owners once available.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Effective July 1st, 2021 pursuant to Florida Statute 125.69, Lee County Code Enforcement is no longer allowed to investigate potential violations of codes or ordinances by way of anonymous complaints. A person who reports a potential violation must provide his or her name and address as part of the complaint. Please note: Florida has a very broad public records law. The complainant's name and address, along with any other information provided, will become public record and subject to public disclosure.

​Look for cases that begin with VIO. Search by case number, address or parcel.

Search for the violation first; we may already be investigating it. Below is a list of complaints Lee County Code Enforcement investigates. You must provide an ADDRESS.
