Code Enforcement - A New Priority
December 22, 2014
Many of the problems we face in Destin can fall back to a common source: code enforcement. In many instances, our existing code covers issues which regularly receive complaints- such as parking, noise, and signage. In such instances, the burden is placed on our code enforcement officers to pursue the complaint and seek remedy. However, in some cases, our code is outdated and needs tweaking, such as in the case of short-term rentals.
Everyone can agree that we have code enforcement issues in our city. The question becomes how will we overcome the challenges and meet them head-on. Two solutions are in process. The first is an online tracking, filing, and monitoring program. Such a program will allow residents to file complaints online and follow their progress. Similarly, code enforcement officers can log their daily activity. The city is testing software for release in early 2015.
Second, the council has met with the city manager to discuss changes in tasking and staffing of our code enforcement. Our goal is to make sure we are adequately prepared to enforce our code and see that enforcement is accomplished. I look forward to changes that will better serve Destin.
