Code Compliance Task Force Begins Review

In 2007 the City changed the way nuisance code violations were handled by “decriminalizing” the violations and creating an administrative hearing process. These codes cover concerns such as trash, weeds, off-street parking and zoning code matters like landscaping, fencing, signs, etc.

However, the Council has received some complaints from property owners and managers who’ve raised concerns about the fairness of the enforcement process. In response a nine-person citizen committee has been convened to assist with an audit of the program services associated with nuisance code enforcement. Mike Ramstack (Pro Realty) and Barbara Koelzer (Government Affairs Director) represent GARA on the citizen committee, which is expected to present its findings to Council in April.
