If a code violation is not abated within the time allotted by the Code Enforcement Department, the case may be scheduled before the Lee County Hearing Examiner. The Hearing Examiner has the authority to impose fines, which may result in a lien being filed against the owner of the property.
Complete the lien mitigation request form below to request the Hearing Examiner to mitigate an outstanding fine/lien. Code Enforcement processes lien mitigation requests twice monthly. The Hearing Examiner only considers lien mitigation requests after the violation has been corrected. The Hearing Examiner does not have the authority to mitigate liens arising from lot mowing and county cleanup costs.
