Code Enforcement to Start Enforcing Trash Ordinance?

Published on November 18, 2007 by Sherri Dodsworth under Cape San Blas

Greeting From Beautiful Cape San  Blas

Gulf County has had a trash ordinance since 2005 but you’d never know it driving down Cape San Blas Road on any given summer afternoon. Apparently the new code enforcement officer is going to have a go at enforcing it by issuing fines, which would be nice, but the cynic in me says not to bother being on the lookout for any flying pigs. Others have tried enforcing both this and the sign ordinance and it’s apparently a recipe for a short career with the county. It’s that “The Rules Are Different For Some People” syndrome again. It seems to be getting to the point where many people are thinking about alternative methods of rubbish removal as a way of keeping the streets cleaner.

The primary problem properties are rental units, and some property managers, by no means all, don’t want to be bothered with complying and so they call and complain and that always seems to be the end of it. Anyway, I like Mr. Aiken, our new code enforcement officer. He seems to ge a good man who takes his work seriously which is what we need, and I do indeed wish him success. Maybe he’ll encourage the rubbish trucks to start communicating with eachother with some form of dumpster Software – at least then they’ll know where they’ve still got to go! This problem has been plaguing us for far too long and it would be wonderful if we could finally solve it. Here is a link to the County Ordinance if you aren’t familiar with the details:
