In a recent blog posting, the Center for Community Progress discusses the various impacts on people and property as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the critical functions code enforcement personnel perform to mitigate them.

The posting advocates for local governments thoroughly investigating all aspects when considering cuts to code enforcement.

  • Adapt Responses to Deferred Property Maintenance
  • Increase Communication with Renters and Landlords
  • Track Residential and Commercial Vacancies
