Archive for the ‘Code enforcement’ Category

My Camera Editorial Advisory Board comment published on June 9, 2007:

Uniform code enforcement is an ideal worth striving for. However, given the number of officers compared to the possible number of offenses and offenders, complaint-driven enforcement is the only feasible way. Once officers get in the office, they should respond to complaints as a higher priority than cruising around looking for violations. That’s good government responding to its citizens.

It’s interesting that homeowners association rules are often stricter than city or county codes, yet their neighborhoods fill up with residents. Why is that? People like the homes as well as the look of the neighborhoods. In older neighborhoods, residents rely on city or county codes. Though it’s true feuding neighbors may use code enforcement to get at their neighbors, the call won’t stick if there is no merit in it.
