Code Enforcement

The Community Improvement Division is responsible for the enforcement of the City of Clewiston's Code of Ordinances, usually concerning safety, appearance, and zoning regulations.  The most common violations involve but are not limited to:

  • Yard maintenance and overgrown weeds and trash
  • Abandoned and inoperable vehicles, boats, trailers, etc.
  • Construction prior to obtaining the proper permits
  • Minimum housing and building maintenance standards
  • Absence of house numbers
  • Illegal signs in the City's rights-of-way or on utility poles

Callers who wish to report an alleged code violation will need to provide the location and brief description.  You may also anonymously lodge a  violation complaint and still be assured your request will be investigated even though the officer cannot follow up with you regarding the disposition of the case.   The City does not enforce deed restrictions or home owner association rules and regulations as those are considered civil matters.

If you receive a violation notice, promptly contact Code Enforcement at 863-983-1454. It is the City's goal to help its citizens achieve compliance.  If you need additional time to correct the deficiency, Code Enforcement will work with you.  There are no time extensions granted for issues dealing with public health and safety issues.  Failure to correct a violation within the prescribed time may result in a fine or legal action.

Check the Code to see if you are in compliance with the City's rules and regulations.
