CS/SB 60 amends the county and municipal code enforcement statutes to prohibit county and municipal code inspectors and code enforcement officers from initiating an investigation into violations of city or county codes or ordinances based upon an anonymous complaint. It also requires that an individual making a complaint of a potential violation provide his or her name and address to the local government body before an investigation may occur.

The prohibition does not apply if the code inspector or code enforcement officer has reason to believe the alleged violation presents an imminent threat to public health, safety, or welfare or imminent destruction of habitat or sensitive resources.

The Department works to resolve all code violations in a voluntary manner, but if needed, the city uses a seven member Code Enforcement Board to ensure compliance of its codes. Please contact the Human Resources Department at (352) 483-5472 if you are interested in serving on this board.

Over four years ago, the City of Eustis transferred animal control responsibilities to Lake County Animal Services. You can report concerns to them at (352) 343-9688, Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. After hours, please call the Lake County Sheriff’s Office at (352) 343-2101. Under most circumstances, cows, pigs, goats, sheep and domestic fowl are prohibited within the City limits.
