[rant] I am not sure where this should go, so I am going to put it here and let the mods move it at will….
Well, our CDBG rep now wants us to keep track and time cards for work that we do in Low/Mod income areas. Well our admin contact person said that Maister, one other person, and I have to spend 1/3 of our time doing code enforcement in low to moderate income areas… and it is ONLY code enforcement. Here is where it gets crazy. Maybe 1/5 of my ‘area’ is low to mod income… and we have a lot of other duties other than code enforcement. So we need a minimum of 13.3 hours a week, on what we should spend less than 8 hours on. OH to make things better, they took away the possibility of working more than 40 hours in a week. If we do, me must leave early in the same week. Did I mention that we are required to work the front desk for 9 hours a week, some of which can be spent on low to mod income… but most of the time it is answering phones, speaking with people and the front counter, and dealing with all the BS that our secretary should be doing, but is not because she is too busy planning her F*&#$ WEDDING!
To make things worse… the low/mod income areas are not that big… if we break it down, and say that each case will take a half hour per week, we need to do a minimum of 27 cases per week, and then give them at least 10 days to correct the violation, then we get another half our per case for inspection and closing paperwork! AHHH
Others that have to do code enforcement can share my pain with me.
