I have a Code Compliance Officer to supervise. First of all, I adore this worker because the work gets DONE. City Council meeting last night a whole street full of people came out to complain about my officer's handling of their citations. They say she's rude and unreasonable, etc. I defended her in the meeting, of course. I think it's hard not to see an ulterior motive there, but it's got me wondering about the personalities of Code Enforcement.
The point is, I think this worker does a good job BECAUSE of her personality, not in spite of it. I don't want her to change, because frankly I think she's more effective in Code Enforcement the way she deals with it than I ever could be (I'm a wishy-washy planner, you know?) Anyway, there's the thought. Are the personalities important?
