No, anonymous complaints will not be investigated. Effective July 1, 2021, Senate Bill 60 became law prohibiting code inspectors from initating enforcement proceedings for potential violations of code and ordinances by way of anonymous complaints; requiring persons who report potential violations of code and ordinances to provide specified information to the department before an investigation occurs. Remember that all information you choose to provide to the County, including names, phone numbers, or email addresses, is subject to the Public Record Laws. In other words, we must provide this information to anyone who asks for it.
The Nassau County Ordinance describes an unserviceable vehicle as any vehicle which is required to be licensed or registered in the State of Florida and is in such condition that it cannot be started or moved under its own power.(Ordinance 2003-17, Section 3)
