Building inspectors, code enforcement officers, fire chiefs, health inspectors, and various other municipal officials are responsible for the enforcement of a variety of codes, regulations, and ordinances related to the use of land. These include both local regulations, such as zoning ordinances, site plan and subdivision regulations, health regulations, and the conditions of approval that accompany many land use board ap-provals, as well as state law, such as the State Building and Fire Code and statutes governing junkyards.
Effectively enforcing these various codes and regulations can pose a challenge to municipalities. Join Legal Services Council Stephen Buckley and Attorneys Matt Serge and Christine Fillmore from the law firm of Drummond Woodsum for this half-day workshop which will provide municipal officials with practical guid-ance on how to navigate the nuanced procedures associated with code enforcement, as well as practical advice in pursuing an enforcement action against non-compliant property owners. Our legal experts will address some of the most difficult issues under the law, including junkyards, dilapidated buildings, and health codes. There will be ample time for questions and answers on all aspects of the law.
Attendees may wish to purchase NHMA's new publication, A Guide to Effective Enforcement: Investigating and Enforcing Code and Land Use Violations, at NHMA's online store (www.nhmunicipal.org/shop). Costs only $45!
