Well, I was just wondering what the Culture is regarding this.
By definition Code Enforcement, here at my place of employment, is its own animal. Bridging the gap between the building code and the zoning code. Our zoning code is fairly self explanatory (as it is old and simple), yet nearly everyday Code Enforcement is up here wanting us to hold meetings for them, tell folks bad news, etc. Each of these instances is an easily solvable Code Enforcement issue-- basically give them a ticket, but when things get tough for them...
We don't usually mind answering a quick question, or interpreting something for them but it seems that on some issues they rely on the Planning Division to do dirty work for them.
What about your organization? Do Planning and Code Enforcement work hand-in-hand? Or does Code Enforcement take care of business without the need for Planning?
