County employees have been making notes of possible improvements to the code for years. “The most important area, in my mind anyway, has always been our current violations process, which is very long and drawn out.  And the proposed process would allow us to get complaints to the County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office a lot sooner, and speed up the resolution of those complaints,” said Niendick.

The Code was first adopted in 1999. “Over the years, the County staff, County Commissioners, Planning Commissioners have just made notes and lists of things that we, you know, would like to improve on,” said Niendick, “And this is the time now.”

The Commission will hold a public hearing Thursday night.  It gets underway at 7:30 on the third floor of the Lafayette County Courthouse in Lexington.
