County begins revenue stream evaluations

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

McMullen remembered back 25 years to his old code enforcement county position.

“The board of commissioners at that time said that we do not want to make criminals out of our citizens,” he said. “We will go down that same line.”

Hudson told commissioners Tuesday that a code enforcement privatization proposal was on the table.

Both the City of Milledgeville and Baldwin County officials listened to a November 2013 presentation from SAFEbuilt, the largest contract provider of building department services in Georgia.

SAFEbuilt provides Full Service Building Department Programs as an extension of current governmental staff for over 20 jurisdictions throughout Georgia and supplemental services to many additional communities. 

“That may be another option to look at a business that has a good reputation to help communities figure out their code enforcement issues and make suggestions on how to change things for the better,” Hudson said. 

County staff has the SAFEbuilt proposal and will include recommendations in next month's occupation tax follow-up report.
