what they’d like to see us enforce,” Deputy Clerk and Code Enforcement Officer Kyle Snyder said in a phone interview Sept. 1. “We already have a draft that’s going to be introduced at the September town meeting and then for voting on in October.”
Once the town gets the code enforce- ment program up and running, Snyder said other topics will be added as needed. In the meantime, town residents are encouraged to send an email, call the town office or drop off a note in the mailbox at town hall, he said.
“It’s not really a survey,” said Snyder, who was hired last October after also serving as a code enforcement officer for the Town of Berwyn Heights. “We actually did a survey back in December just to see what new ordinances the citizens or residents wanted us to look over like traffic and parking, commercial and residential clean lot, or property standards, building and construction, rentals, stuff like that.”
Although the town hasn’t received a lot of input from residents, Snyder said more feedback is expected once the ordinance draft is introduced this month.
“Right now, we’re just trying to see if anyone has any ideas and submit them now. That way, we can kind of get some of the floodwaters beforehand and address any concerns people have before we in- troduce the draft,” he said. “Once the draft is out there, residents can read it and see what exactly is going to be going on.”
The overall goal, Snyder said, is to make sure property standards and codes are updated for the well being of the town.
“We knew we were going to be undertaking large projects — updating all of the codes over the next two years,” Snyder said. “It’s exciting. We’re moving forward and making progress.”
