  3. Report presented by Kenny Mathews, the City of Mandeville’s code enforcement contractor. Here is the text of his report:
  • Since January, the city has been broken down into 12 zones (reference map attached) for purposes of a weekly canvass for code violations. One zone per week allows for a quarterly visit of each site. This is particularly helpful in spotting ongoing violations, such as non-permitted construction, that may not be the subject of complaints.
  • Bi-weekly (as well as response to complaints) canvasses for snipe signs on public property continues.
  • Online searches for short term rental violations continue.
  • Code enforcement complaints are typically investigated within 24 hours. If not resolved, we send out letters of violation, followed by a summons/citation. Parking and motor vehicle issues are typically handled In partnership with the Mandeville Police Department.
  • Enforcement of the sign code is ongoing. This week I am focusing on making sure all temporary banners have a proper permit.

    Mathews fielded questions after his presentation.
