As the city continues to move toward cracking down on municipal code violations, City Council on Tuesday approved a near-$100,000 extension of a contract it has with Anderson Penna, a code compliance staff service company.
The city reported demands for services from the division rose 20 percent from last year. The increase, the agenda report said, is due to some of the new ordinances the city adopted this year—some of which include the new ordinances related to sober living homes and short-term rentals, as well as the implementation of the TRIP program.
City officials asked the contractor to see if evening and weekend services would be available. The contract was approved through June 30, 2017.
