Code of Ordinances
In compliance with, and under the authority of, Chapter 162, Florida Statutes, and the City of Crestview Code of Ordinances, this division investigates alleged violations of city ordinances and seeks their abrogation. When the violator is noncompliant they may be required to appear before the Special Magistrate under Florida Statute Chapter 162 which empowers local government to establish Code Enforcement regulation at the local level. In addition to the use of the Code Enforcement Board process, officers are empowered by State Statute 162 to issue non-criminal citations.
