Code Enforcement

False Alarm Reduction

To contact the code enforcement hot line please dial 772-388-4436 and select option 1 to leave a detailed message of the issue if no one is available to answer the call.

 

There are two code enforcement officers for the whole city: Code Officer Curtis Bloomfield and Code Officer Richard Iachini.  They are on duty during daytime business hours Monday through Friday, Saturdays and every other Sunday. Administrative Assistant Janickie Smith processes the complaint calls and assigns them to the officer handling the specific area of town.

 

The code enforcement division handles zoning compliance issues such as scattered trash, debris and litter and overgrown grass and weeds on properties.  We also respond to vacant lots that have grown over onto improved properties, parking issues such as oversized trailers and recreational vehicles, parking in the swales, noise issues and compliance with the city’s sign code.

 

Most calls can be made anonymously. We must have the caller’s information regarding vacant lots overgrowing onto improved properties in order to follow through with those complaints.

To contact the Alarm Office dial 772-388-4436 and select option 2.

 

Janickie Smith is the False Alarm Reduction Administrator.

 

All alarms at properties within the city limits of Sebastian must be registered with the Sebastian Police Department. This includes monitored and non-monitored alarms, residential and business.

 

There is a $10.00 application fee for registration and if there are no false alarms within each year of registration, the renewal is automatic and free.  If one false alarm occurs within any year, a renewal notice is sent out with a $10.00 fee due. A second false alarm generates a warning letter.

 

On the third false alarm a $50.00 fine is imposed. The fines then increase with each future alarm within a year as follows: Fourth alarm fine is $100.00; Fifth and all others are $250.00 each.
