Spencer’s code enforcement officers to carry violation notice forms in booklets
By Amanda Raymond
SPENCER — Code enforcement officers will soon have a booklet of forms to fill out on the spot when they observe a violation.
Troy Powell, land management director, will discuss the booklets and accompanying ordinance amendments with the Spencer Board of Aldermen at its meeting on Tuesday at 600 S. Salisbury Ave. at 7 p.m.
According to meeting documents, Powell authorized notice of violation compliance order and civil citation forms to be printed in a booklet that code enforcement officers can carry around with them. The officers will be able to fill out the applicable form and hand-deliver it to the property owner as soon as they observe a violation.
The ordinance currently gives residents 10 days to comply with a notice, but the new amendment being considered will give residents five days to comply when the notice is hand-delivered. If the notice is mailed, residents would have 10 days to comply.
In other business, the board will:
- Hear reports from town departments, the town manager, the mayor and delegates.
- Hear public comment.
- Hear a request to waive the reservation fee and special event fee for the Michael Yang Foundation to use the Library Park for the Voices of Hope fundraising event.
- Consider an ordinance amendment designating all areas along the front side of the shopping center at 301-319 N. Salisbury Ave. as a fire lane.
- Discuss an ordinance declaring a road closure for the Holiday Caravan Parade.
- Hold a discussion about leadership changes at North Rowan Middle and High schools.
- Discuss property liens.

- Discuss a cultural arts grant for Beth Nance and the Community Appearance Commission.
