Explanation

BACKGROUND:
In a continued effort to improve operational efficiencies, provide better services to the public, and to streamline government organization and communication, it was determined that the Division of Code Enforcement should be relocated from the Department of Development to the Department of Building and Zoning Services.

This move will improve upon the existing strong coordination between the Department of Building and Zoning Services, which administers several code titles for the City of Columbus, including the Columbus Zoning Code, and the Division of Code Enforcement, which acts as the enforcement agency for the Columbus Zoning Code as well as other code titles. The code changes made by this ordinance will make the necessary adjustments to allow for the smooth and seamless transfer of this enforcement authority.

FISCAL IMPACT: Separate legislation will address the required fiscal and human resource changes.

Emergency Justification: Achieving this transfer sooner rather than later allows BZS to assimilate Code Enforcement and their processes into our current system.
