Camden County officials say they’re cracking down on code enforcement. The county commission has allotted funds for the prosecutor to hire a new employee who will focus solely pursuing violations ranging from sewer and wastewater to planning and zoning and more. Sheriff Tony Helms says one of his primary focal points will be animal control. He says under the current system, his animal control officer is swamped with not a lot of solutions available to him.
The commission will write more specific codes. Complaints will be reviewed for possible citations, the prosecutor will take those to court. Prosecuting Attorney Heather Miller said the goal is to make sure the codes are followed.
All three offices says they’re working together on the improvements.
