Hernando County Code Enforcement
WELCOME TO HERNANDO COUNTY CODE ENFORCEMENT
Hernando County realizes the need to enforce property maintenance standards and zoning regulations to ensure a reasonable quality of life for its residents. We strive to lower the number of public nuisances and unsafe conditions by working with our citizens. Currently, we have 5 full-time officers to address these issues for the entire county, not including the incorporated cities of Brooksville and Weeki Wachee.
As a citizen, you can play an important role in keeping the communities and neighborhoods of this county attractive, clean, and safe. Here are just a few of the things you can do to help if you reside in Hernando County:
- Check with Development Services before you build to determine if a permit is needed,
- Check with Zoning or Code Enforcement to determine what is allowed in your zoning district,
- Keep your trash cleaned up and disposed of properly,
- Conceal or remove inoperable vehicles,
- Keep temporary signs on private property and not in the county right-of-ways
