Chronic Nuisance Code Inspection Fees?

Posted by admin On February 12th

I am the chronic nuisance officer for the City of West Palm Beach and I am hoping you can help me.  I am trying to adapt a re-inspection fee schedule to use for owner occupied properties that do not comply.

(Our Chronic nuisance ordinance does not fall under the typical FSS-162 daily fines)

I am wondering if any city in Florida  charges a fee for each re-inspections in situations like these.  I have been looking in Municode and also making phone calls, and have come up empty so far.   Does  Florida not ever allow fees for code inspections?

I mean there seems to be fees for everything else and these seem like an excessive use of resources above the traditional levels of enforcement paid for by the taxpayers we serve.
