CAPE CORAL CITY COUNCIL DISCUSSING CODE ENFORCEMENT PROCESS

As Cape Coral grows, so does the number of code complaints. 

City Council members want to find new ways to get citizens to comply with city codes in order to make a positive change in the community. 

Cape Coral code enforcement officers deal daily with issues such as garbage piled up, cars parked on grass and mold collecting on properties.  

CAPE CORAL CITY COUNCIL DISCUSSING CODE ENFORCEMENT PROCESS

The city recently created a new self-certifying enforcement process where staff sends out letters for minor violations instead of code enforcement having to investigate every complaint. 

Council members also recently presented a variety of recommendations for code enforcement staff.

The city plans to do more research and bring the issue back to the council for further discussion.
