Lilburn adds code enforcement officer

LILBURN -- The city of Lilburn has hired an additional code enforcement officer, a move officials said will help address resident concerns on nights and weekends.

Lilburn resident Paul Calcaterra was recently welcomed to the city's planning and economic development department as a part-time code enforcement officer, joining a full-time code enforcement officer and a building inspector. Doug Stacks, the city's planning and economic development director, said residents had expressed a desire for increased enforcement outside of regular business hours.

Code enforcement officers address violations like improper storage of trash, junk vehicles, illegal parking and exterior home maintenance, officials said.

"This proactive approach will help Lilburn educate the public and enforce ordinances at times when, in the past, staff has not been on duty," Stacks said.

Calcaterra previously spent 10 years as a building inspector for Gwinnett County and as a code enforcement officer for the city of Chamblee.
