The objective of the Martin County Code Enforcement Division is to educate and gain voluntarily compliance of all county code ordinances. Keeping Martin County compliant protects and enhances property values and makes the County a more attractive place to live.
The Code Enforcement Division receives complaints from a variety of sources including citizens, businesses, staff members, and outside agencies. Staff inspects and investigates complaints to see if violation of County Code exists then begin taking appropriate steps to achieve compliance. These steps can be either an informal and/or formal process. Cases that are not voluntarily brought into compliance may be presented to a Special Magistrate at a formal public hearing.
Code Enforcement Hearings are typically held on the third Wednesday of the month at 9 a.m. in Commissioner Chambers located at 2401 SE Monterey Road in Stuart. These hearings are also shown on MCTV for public viewing.
