Planning and Development Director Bob Cowell says the council that passed the ordinance intended for enforcement to be on a complaint basis.103013-Bob-Cowell-comments-about-court-enforcement.mp3
Cowell also says code enforcement has become more pro-active. He says new five bedroom homes are checked to confirm whether more than four unrelated relatives are under the same roof.103013-Bob-Cowell-comments-about-inspecting-5-bedroom-rentals.mp3
Only Jess Fields, participating in his last council meeting, wanted to eliminate the program.
The council is tentatively scheduled to consider changes November 25th.
