The City’s new part-time Code Enforcement Officer Cassie (Rodriguez) Pineda has begun working and based on the revised schedule that has been developed; the City’s newest team member will be actively working during the following times:
-Friday: 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
-Saturday: 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
-Monday: 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Furthermore, weekend code enforcement activities will also include the ability to follow-up on the following activities:
-Staff will canvass the city and retrieve signs that have been posted on utility poles. Notices of violations will be sent to those with identifying information.
-Staff will canvass the city for unpermitted construction, document activities, and issue “Stop Work” notices when appropriate with instructions to obtain proper permits. Code Enforcement cases will be initiated and followed up with the code enforcement process though compliance.
-Staff will also be canvassing the city for abandoned shopping carts, abandoned items in the public right of way, and unpermitted yard sales.
During the next few weeks, while Cassie is being trained, the City will have full-time Neighborhood and Business Services Division staff accompanying her on Fridays and Saturdays during her first four weeks on the job, from June 1 – June 23. The City is looking forward to rolling out this new level of code enforcement service for the community.
