Meeting of Atlanta Code Enforcement Commission

Thursday afternoon, January 22, the Center for Community Progress, working with the City's Department of Housing, presented a "revamping" of Code Enforcement and explained proposed changes to the code enforcement system in the city of Atlanta. The report suggests that the City of Atlanta increase use of Article 5 of the city code which allows the city to transfer liens placed on a vacant or delinquent property to the tax assessor. The lien would then act as a outstanding tax on the property. This policy allows the City to eventually claim such properties as property of the City of Atlanta. The Board is concerned about the private property implications of this policy and will continue to monitor these suggestions as Atlanta City Council prepares to workshop the report and the policies promoted therein.
