Bill Brocklesby assumed Code Enforcement Officer duties in November 2013. Bill's responsibilities focus on animal cases, with an emphasis on code violations pertaining to dogs. Two other areas of value to the community as a result of the Code Enforcement Officer's efforts are handling weed and sidewalk snow removal complaints. During 2013 the Code Enforcement Officer responded to or assisted with 905 animal-related calls. Of those, 38 were related to vicious dog incidents. In addition to animal incidents, the Code Enforcement Officer responded to 46 weed complaints and 185 abandoned bicycle retrievals. A separate responsibility performed exceptionally by the Code Enforcement Officer is deployment of our radar trailer throughout the City. The department continues to work in partnership through a personal services agreement with the Humane Society of the Palouse. This year the Animal Shelter took in 283 cats and 461 dogs. The shelter was able to return 27 cats and 255 dogs to their owners. In addition, 224 cats and 119 dogs were adopted.
