Both Gem County and Emmett have laws and ordinances in place regarding what can — or cannot — be done with private property. In addition, there are state codes as well.
Both entities have employees who work part-time on code enforcement — Larry Robertson for the county and Brian Sullivan for the city.
Both men took time to outline the biggest challenges they face in their position of ensuring the ordinances are followed.
Editor’s note: Next time, the Messenger Index will look at code violation issues that impact businesses.
