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 the Eighth Street Ball Park Trunk or Treat event.
  • Discuss a cultural arts grant for Beth Nance and the Community Appearance Commission.
