Palm Bay Launches Code Amnesty Program

Post Date:06/09/2020 5:13 PM

The City of Palm Bay understands that many residents are experiencing financial hardships due to the impacts of COVID-19. To assist with recovery efforts, Palm Bay City Council voted to approve a Code Compliance Amnesty Program. The program will enable property owners within the City of Palm Bay to apply for reductions on existing Code Board liens and Nuisance liens, provided there are no current Code violations associated with the property. Properties must pass an updated Code Compliance inspection to qualify for lien amnesty.  

 The Code Compliance Amnesty Program will be available from June 5th, 2020 until December 31st, 2020. The City’s Code Compliance Division is mailing letters to property owners who are eligible to apply for the program. Property owners seeking a lien reduction through the program must contact the Code Compliance Division by December 31st, 2020. Requests may be made in person at the Code Compliance Office at 120 Malabar Road SE, by telephone at (321) 952-3430, or by emailing pbcodecompliance@pbfl.org.

 Qualified property owners may be granted lien reductions based on the charts below. Please note that all approved lien reductions will also include any out-of-pocket costs that have occurred as a result of the City of Palm Bay taking action to remediate Code Compliance violations on the property.
