Carlo McKoy
Code Enforcement Officer
[email protected]
Carlo may be the most visible member of the Planning & Development Department to the general public. Carlo meets regularly with residents, business owners, managers, and property owners about possible violations of various Town codes. If he verifies there is a violation, he attempts to speak in person with the affected person or property owner, then follows up with a written notice. The vast majority of violations get resolved quickly. Many times violations occur simply because the person did not know the local law did not allow certain signs or uses in certain places.
