(1) Each county or municipality may, at its option, create or abolish by ordinance
local government code enforcement boards as provided herein.
(2) A charter county, a noncharter county, or a municipality may, by ordinance, adopt
an alternate code enforcement system that gives code enforcement boards or special
magistrates designated by the local governing body, or both, the authority to hold
hearings and assess fines against violators of the respective county or municipal
codes and ordinances. A special magistrate shall have the same status as an enforcement board under this
chapter. References in this chapter to an enforcement board, except in s. 162.05, shall include a special magistrate if the context permits.
