This is a perfect example of why we appreciate the partnership of Neighborhood Code Enforcement. They often get a bad rap throughout the community because of the nature of their organization, which is to enforce housing standards for the overall benefit of the neighborhoods and community. They do a good job and they have a hard job. The men and women that are responsible for driving the neighborhoods and reviewing properties are often looked down on as being inconsiderate and I'm sure at times, heartless.
This project posting is proof that it's the other way around. I've met more compassionate, generous, and understanding people that work for Code Enforcement than the other way around. The most important aspect of this posting is the fact that this officer didn't have to post this project. He didn't have to take the extra step outside of his normal workflow process to post it, but he did.
Now comes the tough part... It's on the volunteers of NeighborLink to do our part and try to help this elderly gentleman get these violations under control. Now we know the need, know that others want us to succeed, and just need to make the decision to help out. As nice and understanding as Code Enforcement is, they do have a job to do and will have to eventually proceed with their responsibility.
