Code enforcement is focused on the prevention, detection, investigation, and enforcement of violations of statutes or ordinances regulating public health, safety, and welfare, public works, business activities and consumer protection, building standards, land-use, or municipal affairs. Because of the amount of responsibility of code enforcement officers, standardizing comply by dates by violation type and severity is important for a number of reasons:
- Allows the agency to prioritize abatement activities based on threats to public health and safety
- Promotes officer efficiency by auto-populating dates on written notices for them
- Encourages equal treatment amongst all violators based on violation type
- Streamlines training through standardization of abatement protocol and officer best practices
When looking to standardize your comply by dates, it is important to make sure to set a realistic general timeframe that violators should be able to adhere to. If you would like to learn more on how Comcate’s software can help, contact us today.
