Request a Mitigation Hearing for Code Enforcement Case

Do you have an open Code Enforcement case where you have corrected the violation, but there is an active per-diem-fine that is accruing? The City of Miami understands that you would like an opportunity to discuss your fines with the Code Enforcement Board. 


Step 1.Determine Your Eligibility.

Only the owner(s) or someone with legal standing (i.e. Legal Counsel, Power of Attorney) on behalf of the owner(s) can request this type of hearing. All Power of Attorneys must be notarized and will be reviewed by the Legal Department.

-You must have an "Affidavit of Compliance" to request a Mitigation Hearing. All violations must be "complied".  
-You will be required to upload the Power of Attorney document in PDF format when completing the questionnaire to request a hearing.

Step 2.What You Need.

  • Case Number: Your case number can be found on your Notice of Violation (e.g. 2018000000).
  • Power of Attorney, if applicable: A valid Power of Attorney is required if you are not the owner. 
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: All documents and information submitted for a public hearing become a public record available to anyone who seeks public information. It is important that you do not submit any sensitive information.

Step 3.Request a Mitigation Hearing.
