Without getting into code details, Florida Building Code does allow 2 layers of shingle roofing PROVIDED each layer meets the requirements of the building code, including wind resistance per code - so the fasteners have to be longer to fully penetrate the sheathing or supporting wood - not just the previous layer of shingles. It also requires that installation be per manufacturer instructions (some do not allow roofovers), and that it cannot cover wet, seriously damaged, or significantly curling shingles.

As for the county, I could not readily find any specific county provisions - here is the link to send them a question -
