Codes Enforcement Sweep for Fourth & Gill Area Set for Sept. 16

Posted: 09/12/2016
City inspectors will be conducting their third and likely last 2016 codes enforcement sweep in the Fourth and Gill  neighborhood on Friday morning, Sept. 16 starting at 9:30 a.m.

Neighborhood Codes Enforcement Inspectors will be walking the neighborhood’s streets, and when potential codes violations are spotted, they will distribute information brochures to property owners.

Within 10 days, inspectors will return and follow through on whether potential codes violations have been cleaned up.

More traditional enforcement would come during the follow-up visits.

No citations will be issued on Sept. 16.

In addition to identifying possible violations and educating property owners, the inspectors also will be collecting data during the sweep to assist the Knox County Health Department with its Project Diabetes sidewalk obstruction campaign.

The area involved in Friday’s sweep is bordered by North Broadway, Interstate 40, East Glenwood Avenue and East Fourth Avenue.
