The primary functions of the Code Enforcement Department are:

  • To educate the public in code issues
  • To work with the citizens of our community

We are committed to professional code enforcement that is responsive to our citizens. In addition, officers privately enforce regulations as their case load allows. More information on each of these violation types can by located by referring to the Nassau County Code of Ordinance.


It is the mission of the Code Enforcement Department to protect, promote, and improve the health, safety, and welfare of the community through an effective code enforcement program. Please note that Nassau County Code Enforcement does not handle complaints for property or situations inside city limits.


The Code Enforcement Department's workload is principally complaint-generated. The Department receives a substantial number of complaints each year concerning alleged violations of the County Code of Laws and Ordinances.

Each one is investigated to determine whether a violation exists. File a Complaint
