What is the process to report (1) illegal vendors (2) debris on property such as abandoned cars, old furniture, etc. and (3) maintenance of property such as high grass, weeds, etc.?
First and foremost, we need the assistance of the public in notifying us when any of these conditions are noticed. Much as the Law Enforcement Neighborhood Watch operates, we need information on emerging problems as soon as possible. Notification of our Code Enforcement Officer is critical; this Officer can be contacted at (770) 990-4156. This notification sets into motion a series of actions designed to remediate the situation.

In the case of vacant commercial property, additional enforcement action through the Fire Code is possible. On a monthly basis, all identified vacant commercial property is inspected to assure that the building is properly secured to prevent vandalism. Any finding of violation is then processed as outlined above by the Fire Inspector.

Determining whether or not a particular vendor is “illegal” can be problematic. Any vendor physically present in the City can be asked by the Code Enforcement and/or Police Officer if they are licensed to conduct the business in which they are found to be engaged. Again, timely notification by the public is key to resolving this situation.
