Code Enforcement

The Code Enforcement Department is dedicated in providing prompt courteous service to our community through the enforcement of our City’s Code of Ordinances.
 
Our primary focus is the protection of the health, safety and welfare of our citizens. Quality service by our staff helps to ensure the positive growth of property values and a safe, healthy environment to work and play in. As our community continues to grow and prosper, the importance of professional enforcement of our Codes becomes increasingly important. Subsequently, we continue to strive towards increased diversification of staff to better meet the needs of our community and we pride ourselves on our achievements in this area. It is our pleasure to work with you towards improving the quality of life for all of us. On behalf of our staff in Code Compliance, we hope you find this site helpful in assisting you with your experience with the Code Compliance Division.
 
The Code Enforcement Department responds to complaints including anonymous complaints from the public. In addition, each Code Enforcement Officer is assigned a geographically designated zone to monitor activities occurring in that particular area. If you should witness a suspected violation of our City Ordinances, you can contact Laura Jones at ljones@palatka-fl.gov or by filling out our Self-Report System form.
 
Mission Statement: Maintain and improve the quality of life for our citizens through fair, equal and result oriented enforcement of our Code of Ordinances.
