If you have a question about any current ordinances, please use Municode. Municode is a list of the ordinances in effect and that have been codified. These ordinances are occasionally revised or changed by City Council at official and open public meetings. Every effort is made to keep this website up to date. However, there may be a short period of time between City Council changing an ordinance and the revised ordinance being posted on this site. If you have any questions about the status of a particular ordinance, please call the City Clerk's Office at (850) 837-4242 or email the City Clerk, who is the city's custodian of records.
Permanent ordinances that establish procedures or rules of conduct are codified. Codified means the legally adopted ordinance has been assigned a permanent number and entered into an indexed book called the Code of Ordinances.

Some searches may be extensive and may take some time to process. City of Destin 4200 Indian Bayou Trail Destin, FL 32541 Ph: 850-837-4242 Fax: 850-837-3267
