The Community Response Department is made up of the Code Enforcement Division and the Animal Control Division. Both Divisions are located on the 2nd floor of City Hall.
Code Enforcement Division
The Code Enforcement Division enforces the City Codes adopted by the City Commission that establish minimum standards for health, safety and general welfare as well as regulates conditions of existing buildings, odors and pollution in order to prevent the creation of substandard dwellings, slums and blight.
The Code Enforcement Division works closely with the Fort Pierce Police Department, Building Department, Engineering Department, Historic Preservation Department and Planning and Zoning Department. Through mutual interdepartmental cooperation, enforcement of the city code is done without prejudice, provides community preservation and helps maintain a clean and safe city.
Animal Control Division
The Animal Control Division enforces Chapter 6 of the City's Code of Ordinances as well as the laws of the State of Florida regarding animal care and control.
The Animal Control Division's mission is to educate the public about responsible pet ownership and provide programs to decrease the number of unwanted pets in the community.
All complaints for Animal Control must be made through our 911 Call Center. Please call 911 for any call that requires an Animal Control Officer to respond. All other animal control questions, such as questions regarding registration or our sterilization program can be made to 772-467-3720.
All complaints for Code Enforcement will be investigated regardless of the location of the violation or the nature of the complaint.
