Code Enforcement staff shall, to the greatest extent possible by Florida law, keep the identities of people who report violations confidential. When calling to report a potential violation, do not leave your name and telephone number if you wish to remain anonymous. In accordance with the Sunshine Law, all complaints are public record including the person's name filing the complaint.


In response to the amended Florida Statute, the City of Temple Terrace can no longer accept anonymous code compliance complaints unless the alleged violation meets the noted exception below. Individuals wishing to submit a complaint are required to provide their name and address. Thank you for cooperation.

The 2021 Florida legislative session passed Senate Bill (SB) 60 entitled County and Municipal Code Enforcement. SB 60 amends Florida Statute Chapter 162 prohibiting code compliance officers from initiating a code compliance action based on an anonymous complaint. Individuals wishing to submit a complaint are required to provide their name and address. An exception was provided permitting anonymous complaints only if a code officer has reason to believe the violation presents an imminent threat to public health, safety, or welfare or there is a threat of imminent destruction of habitat or sensitive resources. SB60 is effective on July 1, 2021.
