Code development efforts to take more time
October 14, 2014
Kitsap County’s Department of Community Development is taking more time in its code development efforts related to county code compliance as a result of direction given by the Board of County Commissioners at a recent meeting.
The Commissioners asked the department to return during the first quarter of 2015 with a clear problem statement and compounding issues related to the current code enforcement processes. The Commissioners also want a better idea of the magnitude of the code compliance case load, and alternative strategies to update the code.
The Board will review the information received and decide how to proceed.
Prosecuting Attorney Russell D. Hauge said Oct. 10 that provisions of a draft code-enforcement chapter in the county code are unconstitutional. (more)
