The acting mayor of Anchorage intends to keep people in line in Anchorage, during the coronavirus outbreak.
Acting Mayor Austin Quinn-Davidson is hiring three more code enforcers for the municipality to enforce the emergency orders and to “determine if violations exist; initiate enforcement actions to correct violations through negotiated compliance and/or administrative actions. Gather evidence, prepare and present enforcement cases and defend appeals before various judicial, quasi-judicial and administrative bodies, such as court proceedings, the Administrative Hearing Office and Zoning Board of Examiners and Appeals.”
The enforcers will also review plans and applications and conduct business inspections, and … related duties as assigned.
A high school diploma and three years of code enforcement or public contact experience, such as debt collections, is all it takes to become a Senior Code Enforcement Officer in Anchorage, Range 11, making $21.54 to $27.40 an hour.
The Anchorage Assembly is discussing how to keep its emergency orders in place, even if the governor’s emergency declaration is not extended or if a new emergency declaration isn’t in place after Nov. 15, when the current state emergency declaration is set to expire.
