Currently, the division is responsible for enforcement in the County, and the flood damage prevention ordinance. The division’s workload is principally complaint generated. The division receives a substantial number of complaints each year concerning alleged violations. Each one is investigated to determine whether a violation exists. Non–residential construction is monitored to ensure that specific guidelines are followed for commercial development.
