Q: How can I check if a citation has been issued against my house? I received a warning from Miami-Dade County some months ago about some debris in my front yard. I cleared it, and I haven't heard anything since.
A: If you have Internet access, search your folio number at the Clerk of Courts' Code Enforcement website: www.miami-dadeclerk.com/cef/search2.asp. (Find the folio number on your property tax bill or by searching the county Property Appraiser's site: www.miamidade.gov/pa/property_search.asp.) To get citation information by phone, call 311.
