    Zoning Administrator and Code Enforcement Officer Questions

    I need job descriptions and current salary ranges for zoning administrators and code enforcement officers. These will be particularly helpful if they come from relatively affluent communities that are experiencing some growth. Thanks!

    Lee check your PM - sorry I don't know how to attach a MS Word file to a PM so it is an ugly looking cut and paste job.

    In addition, I do some GIS work.

    *note: I do not make even close to $50,000 at this point in my life.
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.
