The city of Denison will hold a workshop next week to outline and provide information on code enforcement and minimum property standards. The workshop will be held Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Denison SNAP Center.


During the workshop, city officials will outline the process for code enforcement notification, provide information on financial assistance programs and discuss programs for community involvement, among other topics.


“Our intent with this workshop is really to educate and engage the community in minimum property standards and code enforcement efforts,” Development Services Director Gabe Reaume said in an email Friday. “Our goal is that we seek voluntary compliance first with all code issues. We’re here to help and we want residents to know that. We also offer financial assistance for residents that demonstrate need.”


In addition to providing information, Reaume said that officials will also be on hand to receive public comment regarding the city’s code enforcement policies.


“On principle, I think it’s best for us to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly from our community,” he said. “They are our customers and we exist as public servants to indeed serve them. Asking for honest feedback is a step in the right direction.”
