Deputy Wayne Clark was hired in April as the county’s new code enforcement officer and will split his time between his deputy duties and code enforcement. Clark’s new duties will include investigating complaints and ensuring compliance, issuing code violation and stop work citations when required, documenting site observations and related communications, citing offenders and appearing in court when necessary.
The county anticipates a further increase in grow operations.
