Code Enforcement Board (CEB)
A quasi-judicial body consisting of seven members, the board receives and evaluates evidence and testimony regarding alleged violations of Marion County codes and ordinances. Fines can be imposed against parties found to be in violation. CEB members are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) and are volunteers that represent varied community interests and possess diverse professional and civic backgrounds. CEB hearings are generally held the second Wednesday of each month.
Code enforcement citations require the defendant to appear in county court. A person receiving a citation may choose to pay a reduced civil penalty and avoid a court hearing or request a hearing. Citations typically address code violations done on public property.
